But you have daily opportunities to show respect for humanity even with the most mundane software."

28. "Superstar lawyers and math whizzes and software entrepreneurs appear at first blush to lie outside ordinary experience. But they don't. They are products of history and community, of opportunity and legacy. Their success is not exceptional or mysterious.

The outlier, in the end, is not an outlier at all."
