Anyone would will learn a lot working for a Google.

Learning the ropes of the tech business through trial and error takes a long time.

What gives a person the chance to be better than a Googler is the years the spent at Google before striking out on their own.

I cannot emphasize this enough. Get a job. if you truly "refuse," make it the first year of a five year plan and call it research.

You may be smarter than every individual at Google (though you're likely not) but you're absolutely not smarter than all of them combined.

Guys,
Just want to ask some advise regarding to how to become a better hacker and entrepreneur- for those of us who do/will not work at Google/Amazon, etc., what do we do to make us better than Googlers?

Another question: regarding to the job you do for paycheck, do you find the side project you are doing far more interesting and rewarding? Is there anything you will tell yourself to do or not do, if you can go back in time to the day you head for your first job?

I will be graduating next May, so your advise really helps!

Thanks,
Zhe
