Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well, who am I to keep you down?
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it

"One of the things we biographers realize is that we distort history a little bit. We make it sound like there’s some great individual in a garage or a garret who has a light-bulb moment and all of a sudden innovation happens. But when you look at innovation, especially in this day and age, it happens in teams — creativity is a collaborative effort in the digital age. I wanted to get away from writing about the singular individual."
- Walter Isaacson

Isaacson is the author of the 2011 Steve Jobs biography. His new book is The Innovators:  How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution. 
He joined Fresh Air to tell us how a 19th century English countess, women mathematicians and programmers of the 1930s and some Silicon Valley hippies changed our world.

Act my age?
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor.
