Paul Graham on Great Hackers

Listening to Paul Graham at OSCON 2004. He's reciting what seems to be a selection from Hacker's and Painters, which I haven't read, but listening to Paul's speech makes me anxious to get a copy. Fresh, direct ideas about current trends in programming, hacker habits, work environements etc.

Paul says that Dean Kamen wrote Segway's instructions in one day . . . in python. Another reason why I need to free up some time to start playing with python.

Update: Paul posted an essay derived from his OSCON keynote.
