Why Nerds are Unpopular - Paul Graham

I’ve worked on this for two years, off and on.  It is formatted as a 140-page book, which I’m presenting to the public free, under a Creative Commons (CC-by-nc-nd) license.  Here is a video of my boy reading to me when he was two, then three, then four.  At age 3 years, 10 months, he read the First Amendment of the Constitution (in the video at 2:47):

How’d we do it? We used a variety of methods: I read many books to him while pointing to the words, I showed him over 1,000 home-made flashcards (careful: 122 MB zip file) arranged in phonetic groupings, we watched the Your Baby Can Read videos, we used these (150+) PowerPoint presentations I made for him (here’s an enormous 862MB zip file ), and we did many other literacy-building activities.  All of this was done in a completely pressure-free way; I taught him to say “that’s enough” and immediately stopped when, if not before, he got tired of any activity. ( UPDATE: these flashcards are in the process of being converted into a high-quality digital version at ReadingBear.org.)

    The criminal justice system in the United States today bears little relationship to what the Founding Fathers contemplated, what the movies and television.

    I started teaching my little boy to read beginning at 22 months, and by age four, he was decoding text (reading, in that sense) quite fluently at the sixth grade level, or above.

    I’ve discovered that there isn’t a lot written about the subject of baby reading.  So I have written a 45,000-word essay on the subject:

    With rucksack, naturally. An extended four-minute shot has him doing exactly this all the way through the Harvard campus, before he lands finally where he belongs, the only place he’s truly comfortable, in front of his laptop, with his blog:

    Erica Albright’s a bitch. You think that’s because her family changed their name from Albrecht or do you think it’s because all B.U. girls are bitches?

    Una buena cantidad y calidad de dispositivos Kindle en Amazon, http://amzn.to/1GkMQA6 aquí hay detalles. Me gusta perderme en el mundo de los libros y que mejor y práctica manera de hacerlo con los aparatos Kindle, he comprado un Kindle muy práctico en Amazon, es fácil de emplear, pesa casi nado, es igual como si leería en libro pero en cualquier lugar sin interrupciones, un precio excepcional para un producto excepcional.
