Go out and learn!

Paul Graham posted a great essay back in January that was originally meant as a High School graduation speech. In his sometimes politically incorrect words (see full text),
Paul invites teenagers to “look for smart people and hard problems”, treat high school “as a day job” and “go out and learn” because “curiosity turns work into play”. All in all a fairly inspiring text that may come in handy when your kid needs some motivating to work his/her way through a defective school system.
