Good ol' Hutch, still putting some really smart stuff together...
Hutch is still such a friendly guy. Was messaging him this week about the David Epstein book on generalists that he had recommended. He of course calls it "Very reaffirming for those of us whose careers have meandered".
Meandered is another way of saying he was a Rhodes Scholar (I think), PhD in physics at Oxford, National Team runner, MA in Journalism from Columbia, published all over the place, wrote a book and plays NAC level jazz in his spare time.
Someone introduced Hutch as saying "I read his background to my gf's who said, why don't you have your act together like him?"
