They laughed when I spent my sophomore year in high school in front of my computer. "My square headed girlfriend!"
They shunned me when I stayed late in the school computer lab wearing my thick glasses and pocket protector with pens in it.
Girls snickered when I passed by in the hallway wearing my "flood style" too short pants.
But now who's laughing? Sure, I still wear geeky clothes and my shirt has a pocket protector. I spend virtually all my time with a bunch of other geeks staying late at the Google campus in Palo Alto. And yes, I haven't actually been on what you would call a "real date" with a woman.
But my net worth is over 650 million dollars. Who's the geek now? Oh, me.
