Now in real life, what is magic in our world? It’s kinda the opposite. It’s about imagining something which is not yet exist, and believing in it so much that you will it into existence with a lot, lot, lot of hard work. So much work that people often think you are crazy. A lot of today’s magic is coming from Silicon Valley. One example is Facebook, which was invented by Mark Zuckerberg a few years after I graduated from Harvard. I know you guys, all not being yet 13, aren’t on Facebook yet. I won’t tell. But he just had a vision, and dropped out of college to pursue it.
Or Google or the iPad. Those are really magical isn’t it? It’s about dreaming, having a vision, even when other people think you are crazy, and just going for it.
And magic doesn’t just have to be about computers, it can be about science and art.
Great stuff, j8!
