Yes, this post is kind of interesting, but more interesting is the realisation that…
Cory Doctorow is exactly one week older than me.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I still check folks ages, just to keep tally on my “by this time in my life, I should have achieved…” paranoia.
For instance, I started playing guitar at, IIRC, 13, because I’d heard that Clapton didn’t start till he was 16, and I could say that I was 3 years better than Clapton at my age. You know, like “I have studied my kung-fu for 16 years!”
SO curse your black hide Doctorow! one week ahead of me, and you got the whole novelist, uber-geek blogger thing tied up!
