Stumbled on this article profiling Alan Lippman, one of the brains behind the early RealNetworks technology, and was amazed to learn he went to college at age 11! Then I realized I’ve spoken with him in his new venture, Trusted Media Networks. Reviewing my notes, I see that he mentioned being the chief engineer, but nothing about graduating high school at 11. He’s as modest as he is smart.
