Credentials vs. Chronology: Inappropriate Age Restrictions

Sounds like it is time to revisit the age limits. There are some people under the age limit who are more qualified than most of their elders and should be welcomed. The age limits punish youthful innovation and poison the relationship between young CEOs and their potential employees.

Right on! Something that really P'd me off long ago was that in Canada one had to be 15+ years of age to get an amateur (ham) radio license.  Whereas in the USA there was no lower age limit - all one had to do was pass the tests.

Wow this is fantastic. And age where people are still thinking which career to choose, he is already done wonders. US is a place where people can do what they believe in. Society and infrastructure will never be an obstacle. Many of my friends who studied and settled in US have done wonders in their career whether medicine or technology or even movie production. No one judges you because of your age, color, race, background or monetary capacity. Its just the knowledge and hard work.

Obviously being a certain age brings a great deal of perspectiv in and of itself. But more than that, he can speak to what it's like to have to overcome other people's doubts about you, and perhaps one's own doubts about oneself, in order to accomplish what he has accomplished.

on a lighter note, the guy does not look his age and neither does his passion for technology. But genius does not need formal knowledge to innovate.

I dont' know...young people can be pretty passionate about technology. They are oftgen totally immersed in it, like they find it to be an organic or natural experience.

@zewde, I agree with you. Sometimes technology is very interesting. To begin with it looks pretty challenging but if we understand the basics of the system then it becomes more fun to innovate and build new products.
