The Genius and Tragedy of Patrick McKenzie

I. This post outlines Patrick McKenzie - a brilliant technologist and entrepreneur - how he's done such amazing things and learned so much, and why he's getting drastically underpaid and how it's his own fault. This post will be most valuable for technologists who underestimate themselves and undervalue themselves.

II. Hacker News is the best tech community on the internet, and patio11 - Patrick McKenzie - is the best contributor there. I don't even think that's controversial, I think it would be near universally agreed by the HN crowd that Patrick has made as many or more important contributions as anyone.

If you're from Hacker News, you know Patrick already. But for my readers that don't know him, let me give you a quick overview.

III. Patrick is a multi-faceted genius, and I don't throw the word genius around casually.

Patrick McKenzie is many things - he's an expatriate to Japan, he's a talented coder, tester, metrics/split-testing/analytics user, a great writer, extremely modest and helpful. He can recruit people, evaluate talent, and manage people well. He understands ROI very well and is good at purchasing advertising. He's good at customer service. Outsourcing. Automation. Coding. Ecommerce.

Choosing My Favorite Superhero

On Imported Blog

For some arbitrary reason, I enjoy thinking of my favorites. Whether it be musicians, sports teams, or really anything else, I have this urge to occasionally "categorize" myself (despite the fact that I detest labels and believe we should stray away from them). That being said, I always wondered who my favorite superhero was.

Now I never really grew up with superheroes. I wasn't an avid comic book reader like your stereotypical nerd (any Big Bang Theory fans?). Really, my only experience with superheroes are the few mainstream movies I've watched recently. This blog post is an effort to dive into this realm I've never ventured into.

For time's sake, I'm only going to look into a few of these individuals. This selection is mainly based on popularity because I don't really want to look closely into obscure superheroes (who the hell is Plastic Man?).

My choices were Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Hulk, and Thor. All are pretty well-known, but I tried to incorporate both icons and a few darkhorse candidates. I do realize I don't have any women choices, but that's because there are no recent well-known movies about female superheroes.
