Speaker Bio:
Graham Mitchell is one of us. He ended his high-school salutatory
add

ress with Emerson''s quote: "Whoso would be a man must be a
nonc

onformist." But fourteen years as a high school computer science
teacher has trained him to be somewhat fluent in the social language

of popularity. And now he acts as a sort of translator between "nerds

"
and "normals".
