## Comment: Like math (Score 1) 425

If programming is like math (and I think it is in some ways) then the distribution of talent may very well be U shaped. There seems to be a few extremely talented mathematicians like Gauss, Euler, Cantor, Godel, Ramanujan, etc. and then everyone else. That doesn't mean that those like me near the bottom of the U can't appreciate and follow what those at the top accomplish but I think the nervous systems of those who can think so clearly about math are wired in a different way. Maybe so with programmers too.
