Being clever should not be a crime. Clever people are useful. They make the things that allow the rest of us to sit on the sofa distracted by flashing lights and beguiling sounds while scratching out itchy bits. The arrest of 14 year old Ahmed Mohamed for bringing a homemade digital clock to his school is a sure sign that our society mistrusts clever folks, particularly if they are not white (and preferably wealthy). He wanted to show his teachers what he could do. Instead they taught him what they can do. The most important lesson from all this is that, most of the time, idiots are in charge and they will gleefully do stupid stuff. Making things is cool. Listening to kids is cool. Being a racist idiot is not cool.
