Looking for ‘great,’ not just ‘good’

For parents of aspiring software engineers (or just about anyone job seeking in the tech industry, maybe any industry), a commentary in Business Week by serial tech entrepreneur Auren Hoffman spells out how important it's getting (for startups, anyway) to find and keep "great people," not just good ones, and what constitutes the former. Food for thought, anyway – and thinking and discussing is vital filter development for adolescents. Working on the filter in their heads is both protection and good for developing the impulse-control and risk-assessment part of the brain not complete till anybody's early 20s – not to mention good prep for job interviews with people like Hoffman.
