On Not Being Cool 

Bill Gates, riled at Windows always being the butt of everyone's jokes:

“Does honesty matter in these things, or if you're really cool, that means you get to be a lying person whenever you feel like it?”

That's how it seems, Bill. Cool people tend to be lying people, as you'll discover when you grow up. It's not right, but there it is.

The idea of getting Jerry Seinfeld to do some ads is good. He's so industrial/hip. But the story cited uses the phrase “comic kudos”, where I think they mean “cred” or “cachet”.

Watching TV is a good way to tear yourself away from the computer.
