About

This site came to be during the writing of my book, Misheard Lyrics.

In that book, there’s a chapter in which the main character discusses a blog post he’s contemplating about the issues faced by really smart people. The essay appears on the home page of this site.

I don’t necessarily subscribe to all the attitudes my character writes about in the essay, but I do resonate with most of them. In the book chapter, the protagonist creates a site, Ultra-Brights.com. That’s the name of this site. Weird.
