The emergence of Stanford

by Jim (fisherj08) @, A Samoan kid's laptop, Monday, December 04, 2017, 10:57 @ Grantland

can't really be discounted here. There's a fixed set of kids every year who actually do care about academics and the two best schools for that are Notre Dame and Stanford.

Now, when a kid actually cares about academics, he can choose between trudging through the snow OR hanging out a stone's throw away from the modern capitalist paradise of Silicon Valley, where the entire population is full of Stanford grads. It isn't really a fair competition.
