It really is true

I work in a pretty good research institute in Manhattan. Like any other, we’ve got a bunch of computers, one for each employee plus some general ones for microscopes, electrophysiology and imaging, and they all run IE, except for the ones that someone manually installed Firefox on already. Today, my professor steps in (he’s usually in his office). If you’ve ever seen a genius college kid, this is him but 10 (or 15) years wiser, I swear, genius. He can code Matlab faster than me and has a brain like nobody else. He opens up the webmail and notes that it looks different and asks – confused – “is this the new internet or so?”.

I really actually thought people were kidding when they said this sort of stuff about their granny…
