You know that Mark Zuckerberg was something of a teen genius, and you might have heard about Feross Aboukhadijeh, the Stanford University student who created YouTube Instant the other day and was promptly offered a job by YouTube’s CEO Chad Hurley. A similar story has just come out though about a fifteen year old creating iTunes Instant!
Pretty impressive, huh? I wonder if he’ll get a job offer too. We’re you that tech savvy as a teenager?
The article reminded me a lot of the discussions we’ve had on here about digital natives. Of course there have always been child prodigies and teen geniuses, but with the technology today it seems like they have even more opportunities to shine.
