George Hotz

via Bloomberg:

For the first time in my life, I’m like, ‘I know everything there is to know’.


Remember this name: George Hotz. Besides being the first to hack an iPhone at the age of 17 showing some technical brilliance, I think what’s most fascinating is his perspective on what is right, what is wrong, what is possible and what is impossible:

I live by morals, I don’t live by laws. Laws are something made by assholes.


He’s an encouragement to me and a reminder that it’s still very much okay to go all out on a project of serious magnitude, even if the odds are very small.

There’s a great video on Bloomberg’s site too.
