  28. 28. Bejerano continues... “And if you get into 202 and 303, you’d probably be better off for that.You’ll become dangerous with the computer – and I really think the future is there. There is no institutional way of pushing you toward those intersections (in academia today), or at least fewer than there will be in five or 10 years. There aren’t big hurdles, but there’s no illuminated path.You have to jump yourself.” source: http://on.recode.net/1e86dgE Thursday, February 6, 14
