First of all, I love your blog. It's very useful to the programming community. I'm disappointed that you gave up your dream of going to MIT just because you were rejected once. There were hundreds of applicants competing for few spots at MIT. Those who got in are smart, too. Even though they might not be as smart as you are. From your blog, you come across as immature and one-sided. Your application probably gave off the same vibe. When you're a little older and understand life outside of programming a little better, you will make a great candidate. Please don't give up your dream so easily. Michael Jordan didn't make his high school junior varsity team the first time he tried. It's true that you don't need MIT to be an alpha programmer. You are already an alpha programmer. On the other hand, since you don't need MIT to become an alpha programmer, why should MIT give you that spot? I hope to see you try something that's hard for you like making friends with average intelligent people. The people you meet on this blog are too like-minded. Go out and explore the other side of the intellectual spectrum and let me know what you think. Please, please, don't give up your MIT dream just yet.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
