Ben Paster is a 17 year old self-professed entrepreneur from outside of the Boston area.  When you go to his personal website, a brief scroll tells you:

Do Something Different.

It Doesn’t Have to Be Amazing.

Or Revolutionary.

Just Different.

In a letter to his fans, Ben explains his path towards entrepreneurship as a combination of passion and practice, combined with the gift of being interested in computers early and so getting a headstart.  He’s primarily self-taught about design, video, and social media, and he uses them regularly.  His twitter stream has over 2000 updates!

Ben also blogs regularly at Teens In Tech

Ben has a couple of projects going, including a company called Strike Internet.  As of this writing, none of his projects seem to be live/active, but he promises that they will soon be innovative, disruptive, and just great.

So stay tuned!
