[00:14.03]I lived up at Radcliffe, in Currier House.

[00:19.49]There were always lots of people in my dorm room late at night discussing things,

每天我的寝室里总有很多人一直待到半夜,讨论着各种事情。

[00:24.42]because everyone knew I didn't worry about getting up in the morning.

因为每个人都知道我从不考虑第二天早起,

[00:30.49]That's how I came to be the leader of the anti-social group.

[00:34.32]We clung to each other as a way of validating our rejection of all those social people.

机会大,并不等于你就会成功。

[01:02.44]One of my biggest memories of Harvard came in January 1975,

我在哈佛最难忘的回忆之一,是发生在1975年1月的一件事。

[01:10.52]when I made a call from Currier House to a company in Albuquerque

那时,我从宿舍楼里给位于阿尔伯克基的一家公司打了一个电话,

[01:16.28]that had begun making the world's first personal computers.

[01:22.00]I offered to sell them software.

[01:24.58]I worried that they would realize I was just a student in a dorm and hang up on me.

我很担心,他们会发觉我是一个住在大学宿舍里的学生,从而挂断电话。

[01:31.00]Instead they said:"We're not quite ready, come to see us in a month,"

但是他们却说:“我们还没准备好,一个月后你再来找我们吧。”

[01:35.35]which was a good thing,

[01:37.14]because we hadn't written the software yet.
