What you can’t say

I like Paul Grahams site, he has some really cool essays, books on lisp and a story on how they sold Viaweb to yahoo for $45 million.

He also wrote an essay on what you can’t say that I think most people would enjoy reading.

Nerds are always getting in trouble. They say improper things for the same reason they dress unfashionably and have good ideas: convention has less hold over them.

– Paul Graham

He gave an awesome talk about hackers that you can download here or listen to below.
