Week 9

Quote of the week:
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
-Scott Adams

Scott Adams was born in New York in 1957. After being named high school valedictorian, he earned a BA in economics from Hartwick College in upstate New York, and an MBA from UC Berkeley. He worked a variety of low-paying jobs after graduating (including a job as a bank teller where he was held up at gunpoint twice). Adams spent his free time doodling insulting cartoons about his boss and coworkers. Eventually, he came up with a software engineer named Dilbert. In 1988, Adams sent his Dilbert drawings to major cartoon syndicates, and in 1989 Dilbert appeared in 50 newspapers. Dilbert now appears in 1200 newspapers and in many books and calendars. Aside from drawing, Scott Adams also speaks around the country.
