“The capacity to learn is a gift; The ability to learn is a skill; The willingness to learn is a choice.”― Brian Herbert, House Harkonnen
Santiago Gonzalez has a unique mind and loves to program computers. At just 14-years-old he is already fluent in about a dozen different programming languages, and thousands of people have downloaded his 15 or so iPhone and iPad apps.
His daily routine is something most of us can find admirable. Typically getting up at 5:30am, he spends the first hour of his day programming at home, then, after preparing for school he heads off to the Colorado School of Mines, a research university devoted to applied science and engineering.
