Living with Kryptonite
The Intolerance of Genius
is so true. I worked with and later for a woman in Silicon Valley who said that she was a "genius shepherd" at DEC at one point. Her role was varied, including matchmaker, spin-doctor, etc.
Of course, where I went to school there were some of these kind of (genius) people scurrying about. It was interesting to rub elbows with them.
