Dude, If I had it to do all over again I would probably go to law school. This is after an undergrad. in physics and a chunk of grad. in astronomy. Attys. have so many options… but if you know the nitty gritty of the tech. too, you’re that much more ahead of the game and able to actually start doing so much more than hacking code… legal informatics, word.

Holy crap… I didn’t actually read to the end of that wired story (bad habit). Cal turned you down? WTF, mate? I feel ashamed… maybe we only take stupid people.

If you are going to College I hope you’ll find the following article http://www.guerrillanews.com/media/doc5102.html about the campus culturewar between left- and right-wing ideologists interesting. hope someone from a big U reads the wired article and makes you an offer you can’t resist ;-)

Don’t worry about Cal turning you down, they do it all the time for weird reasons. You wouldn’t believe how many Stanford students didn’t get into Cal (though mostly non-californians). Have you thought about what undergraduate major you are interested in? Maybe I’ll see you somewhere on campus next year.
