Video on msnbc.com: How do you raise a genius? At age 11, Taylor Wilson told his parents that he wanted to build a nuclear reactor in the family garage.

 

How do you raise a genius? At age 11, Taylor Wilson told his parents that he wanted to build a nuclear reactor in the family garage. His parents never guessed he would do it, but three years later Taylor made history as the youngest person ever to build a fusion reactor. 

 

Since then he’s continued to amaze everyone around him with inventions like a cheaper way to make medical isotopes to treat cancer, and a better way to detect dirty bombs. Rock Center’s Harry Smith hikes in the mountains of Western Nevada with this boy wonder to learn what makes Taylor Wilson tick.

Why I Turned Down Apple For A Startup

Why I Turned Down Apple For A Startup | My Scoops | Scoop.it

"I’m always amazed at how many startup founders describe their company with: “We have this really cool product with features like…” and then mention foosball tables, yoga rooms, and Chief Fun Officers. But when they start with: “Millions of people have a problem that we solve by…” I know they’re starting at the right place. There’s nothing wrong with startup perks, but they’ll be gone when the “cool product” becomes a solution that could never find a problem."

R Nagarajan's insight:

its always a tough call when choosing a startup to work. Its tougher when we choose to startup...Finally it is always the primitive urge to explore and get fascinated by the unknown which draws ppl to startups.
