On Nerd Entitlement: Those who feel underprivileged are now the privileged

Mark Guzdial, Jan 08, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Compared to the vast majority of people, I am rich and I am privileged. No, I am nowhere near the one percent, but that's irrelevant. Having said that, it was no easy road to get to where I am. So I emphasize deeply with Scott Aaronson's perspective. I do recommend Scott Alexander's post about Scott Aaronson's struggles, except the last section (which trivializes everything that went before). Here's coverage in the Chronicle, here's Scott Aaronson's post, and here's his 'Comment 171' that kicked off the whole discussion.
