Scott Adams is More Dogbert than Dilbert

Scott Adams is smart, funny, and an enjoyable read. A recent Wall Street Journal piece on Scott Adams as an Entrepreneur reveals some colorful stories that shaped him.

It was a high hurdle, but a loophole made it easier to clear. We only needed a majority of students who said they planned to live in the dorm next year. And we had plenty of friends who were happy to plan just about anything so long as they could later change their minds. That’s the year I learned that if there’s a loophole, someone’s going to drive a truck through it, and the people in the truck will get paid better than the people under it.

He calls ’em like he sees ’em about those with less muscle in their brain:

Why do we make B students sit through the same classes as their brainy peers? That’s like trying to train your cat to do your taxes—a waste of time and money. Wouldn’t it make sense to teach them something useful instead?

He then distills these experiences down into highly potent nuggets of wisdom.  I have bookmarked to my Pinboard account for later reference.
