I misread that as "An interview with a 7-year-old" the first time around. (Or to be more precise, I read it as interview, 7, Paul Graham and filled in the blanks incorrectly.)

I like the questions and answers, though! Especially this sentence:

> The best programmers are the ones who are not only good at translating ideas into code, but who have the best ideas.

It was especially good timing, too, because I've been spending a lot of time learning about how to judge the quality of ideas lately, and what effect the quality of an idea has on a programmer's motivation.
