Here’s an anecdote that captures my own observations perfectly:
“How many of you want to start a company?” David Tisch asked. All hundred hands went up. That’s why we were there, crowded into a Wharton classroom to seek startup advice from an industry luminary.
“Keep your hand up if you are technical.” Five hands remained. Maybe six.
“Keep your hand up if you are looking for co-founders.” The only remaining hand belonged to a CS freshman in the corner.
This is why I’m learning to program.
