Re: "terrible...student"
And, more to the point, grades are also less than reliable predictors of employment/employability.

Re: Autonomous cars?
It's important to remember that even our present, newer cars that are not autonomous are still just as hackable/insecure.  It's an issue we're dealing with now, and manufacturers have been not as responsive as security researchers might like.

Re: "terrible...student"
Good point. Grades are almost like irrelevant in today's world. What we experience is that some students get the highest grades and they are not the highest performers in their professions.

Agree. Most successfully people are the ones who did not give up following their passions. And being dedicated to what they are doing.

Autonomous cars?
I wonder what will happen when we reach to era of autonomous cars. With the level of security hacks we are facing today in digital word, even with the 1% of that will be very problematic since it may result in injuries or death. We have to come up with better prevention techniques before that.

...and, more to the point, that if you're passionate enough about a subject, you can find the solution and become skilled at it regardless of grades or pedigree.

Re: "terrible...student"
I think Chris's story is a testament to how important it is to find and follow your passion. He figured out early on that reverse-engineering and research was his real love and he went after it--after-hours and then ultimately, as a living. Pretty cool.

"terrible...student"
I think young people should pay heed to Valasek's words about him being a "terrible" student.  So often "good" students wind up not doing so well in the real world, and "bad" and mediocre students excel.

As explained to me once: "The B's work for the C's, and the A's teach."
