This is the kind of article I love from Paul Carr, I do like his sense of humour and the research and attention to detail. I'm surprised the comments are not already aflame, its not called 'life fire' for no reason.

Brilliant. I would add, if you are going to take ten years to learn to do things (there is a quote I think is from Carnegie about spending a third of your life learning, a third getting rich, and a third giving the money away) then why not spend some time working for a big company, spend 5 years working at Microsoft, EA, IBM or SAP, and you'll learn a lot about how things work in the IT industry. I understand the fear of missing out but if software is eating the world then the opportunities aren't going anywhere.

I completely agree with your thesis that mentoring is such an important part of learning and improving yourself, and you have an interesting point of view that people who can not find good mentors within their company should look outside it, around the industry. I work for a big 'corporate America' company and I've found their attitude towards mentoring to be excellent. But then again, we sell mainframes too :-) (My views are my own)

@MartinWawrusch There seems to be some kind of buffering/caching limit, if you leave it paused for a long time in Chrome and come back to it you need to reload the page, if you pause/unpause it a lot then after a few times it won't start again. I understand they don't want to use YouTube as it wouldn't lead people here as much, although you seem to be able to get most of PandoMonthly on YouTube anyway, but I defiantly up vote a better player.
Everything everywhere is a mobile phone network carrier in the UK. Just thought I share that as it made me smile.

Great article. Good analysis about things that are useful. Saved for future reference after the third table. Thank you.

Good piece. Without disagreeing with the central thesis of the piece one of the topics of the papers by Shinichi Mochizuki that you quote is "Arithmetic Elliptic Curves", looking at his website and the papers he has published on the topic (2008-2012) they are fairly theoretically minded but elliptic curves are used extensively in cryptography. Not evidence of bitcoin provenance, but still should be corrected.

@JohnFrankel @jrmyhdgs I've looked at a few of these home automation systems and if you really can nail the UX and have a decent API for the tinkerer, then I guess I'll have to be buying one soon.
