Paul Graham

Paul Graham born in Weymouth, England

13 Nov, 1964

Paul Graham is born in Weymouth, Dorset. The family moves to the U.S. and he grows up outside Pittsburgh, where his father works as a physicist designing nuclear reactors and his mother takes raises him and his sister. He starts writing computer code in high school, including a program to predict the flight path of model rockets.

If I could go back and give my thirteen year old self some advice, the main thing I’d tell him would be to stick his head up and look around.
