Some brief thoughts on Nick D''Aloisio's (17yr old who sold to Yahoo for $30(?) mill) talk at #turingfest:
- he's always working on several things at once (a little less school work now though still doing A levels!)
- he loves self learning and continuous learning (seems to be a primary motivation)
- he's not frightened to ask questions/seems to embrace having mentors
- being so young he's perhaps not developed a sense of fear, a fear of failure or fear of approaching amazing people
- he likes drupal (which +Chelsey Fenn will be pleased to hear)

A question (that I'm too polite to ask directly!) is how long before he'll be working at Google!
