Only at Harvard

Only a

t Harvard: you attend a random cocktail party where someone says, “oh, my friend hosted Stephen Hawking last summer. It took Hawking the entire weekend to write a sentence. He can’t possibly have written that book!”

At another cocktail party, someone’s computer science professor had both Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg in class, and he said “Zuckerberg was an asshole. Gates was much nicer.”

Walking out of Shakespeare class, I literally bumped into Tracy Kidder, and had a nice chat with him about why neither of us much like Othello (though we both confess neither of us could write anything as good as it).
