                  Fellow Grinnell alum. Kumail was on Bill Simmons podcast and quoted his major professor in computer science on the interview who also happened to be my professor when I was there. I felt like I was hallucinating. Such a sharp and likeable guy from humble beginnings. And he's right everyone in Silicon Valley is an asshole.
