-- time to implement technology via the founders view it exactly and the thing is incredibly exciting time technology giant especially with the rise of mobile. And the thing that. It's a pretty fast moving industry but I think that's something that makes it possible for women Q moved fast catch up. You can actually and the computer science lately guided and they get an acute computer technology I was in college. But it hasn't is -- fast industries he thinks it freed up a lot of studies shows that. Payment update to get technology computer science because it because -- -- culture. Right -- that house. You do -- campus is to at all I'd use you know -- espresso you know. He's -- you can finally lands in -- I -- then -- and I think it's more about seeing it all kinds of different. You can -- -- and -- you can be a job. And you can still he would create your sites are great technologists are great product designer and I think many different people with an -- on their own terms. You realize that you can do it on your terms that you don't need to warned that stereotyping. Culture that you can bring with what you have -- operate. Bring out a great time humans hack but there's not happen. But I worry they'll love the competition it's really focused on what percentage of the ties. And the truth is the highest that they. But we're not producing enough computer scientists -- not producing enough but designers need a lot more people to keep up -- All of these gadgets out of technology all the possibilities the jobs of the future we really need a lot more people interested. In mobile technology in computers. I -- -- a lot more people and if we grow that number the number of remodeling my -- needs are right the -- are things like. The advanced placement exam 200000. Students a year. -- Have the calculus exam. Only 141000 take computers. That 7% of kids think they're gonna now. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Only 2% Google engineers word exposed computer science -- case. Which means -- you graduate school and you haven't been exposed computer science. Odd that you're going and not being in there somewhere -- kind of thing. We really need to get the number of Mac yet 200000 or iPad and students graduated from his left -- that we're taking computer science as well as. As opposed to the site. When you look at many successful people you often hear stories people who just worked 8800 hour weeks. Breakneck decades -- but many people went for killer Einstein I think they. And like how they do that. I really think that. No I'm thinking about burnout game related -- marketing in her feet and not having -- -- -- are not getting three meals a day I haven't got any you do it. Does for some people -- Nvidia's is what content is present but costs burnout is resentment. Is that feeling up I worked eighty hours past be and I had and I had -- -- my friends. Are now I -- a hundred hours last -- and I missed the soccer game. By and then that feeling of resentment kind of build them unique you know -- -- animal I want to. And so I think that when -- get that I've done with my team for myself is what is it that you eat. In order to not give them -- And I've done section -- a few times there -- and -- invites gamers were used as working really hard for him. Take a month and I think about. Well you're working what is it that you need in -- not because -- And -- backed -- -- -- sent Tuesday night. You just graduated from school animal friendship group -- is potluck teasing some excitement and it isn't it well no. -- -- on this hotline and I have to. If I think you know skip that meant that someone else's house and not see or even worse -- -- to cancel -- at my house Republicans on Tuesday night. I'm just -- quest -- -- feel like. I did all the work and I couldn't even if -- used -- -- us government -- and not my dot com makes this happen. I had I'm -- a soccer. Who is with a read about it and her team on Google finances Bangalore to get doing video car. All in the morning as I -- got three kids due to N 92 and like you are getting rid of these land conference call. She -- of a human beings that don't worry about him well with -- don't. Think what does bother me is missing soccer. Or being ten minutes late for the recycle -- in the -- and I -- within my job is to make sure that you never -- something. And it is actually interestingly enough process because. Thirty days and exiting -- an evening at like -- 35 and I know that Katie had been out there for about 4 o'clock games and -- night. Well if you've got to go around in the just five minutes and -- promised they are like you know it doesn't dispense with power and I think you know he's got ago. I think you get -- back together again tomorrow. Panda. Habitat isn't I think all the changes for people throughout their life I don't have kids right now for me it's travel. -- once every -- four months six months I like to go somewhere I've ever been and I also have the benefit of being out of office for an entire week. Missing every standing meeting -- Figured you know my team understands that like -- -- the world and I'm not there I understand the world of numbers. There and it is really scary is that provides a lot sanity and I think that that would change over time and it's been nothing you know what is it that you need. -- -- don't -- that was from people that it. A good night's sleep. Have time but -- -- if you good meals -- day but -- -- -- that's something that's just getting personal that if things over the top.
