The story of gifted educator Seymour Papert, inventor of the Logo programming language, as he struggles to recover from an accident:

Nineteen months ago he was struck by a motorbike in Hanoi and suffered a brain injury so severe he was comatose for a month and couldn’t walk, talk, or read. The man widely considered to be the most important living thinker about the way children learn is struggling with an unreliable memory and an uncertain grip on words. And his wife and his caregivers are using insights from his theories about learning to help bring him back to a normal life.

Particular taken with the passages regarding his speech, and its disconnected construction. Buried in its nonsense and non-sequitur there is genius, but its as though his thoughts are being garbled by a poor translator.
