How to fly a horse – the myth of the genius by Daniel Gray
Throughout all our lives, we’ve been exposed to the notion of the “genius”, singular minds that defy all reasonable expectation and are simply better than you. The truth is that these “genius” minds are not that different to all of us, and each of us has the capability to be a genius if only we’d recognise our potential.
Credit for “How to fly a horse” goes to Kevin Ashton – coiner of the term IOT and the inventor of the RFID tag.
Daniel Gray is a Senior Developer / Mentor at Gilmond where he herds cats, shovels “best practice” and tries to find the time to build interesting stuff.
He’s been a software developer for nearly 20 years (primarily on the Microsoft stack) and has seen stuff come, go and then come back again with startling regularity.
A father of two, he fills his spare time with teaching his daughter how NOT to be the programmer her teachers tell her to be, whilst finding time to indulge his favourite (simulated) pastime of shooting aliens in the face.
