Check Me Out

While interning at Microsoft Research this past summer, I was chosen to be interviewed by Channel 8. Channel 8 is a Microsoft site dedicated to connecting students who are interested in technology and all the goodies that come with it. To quote their about page,
Channel 8 is THE place to be for STUDENTS who want to code, connect and create technology. Stay plugged into tech news and share in the experience with students around the world just like you who want to see their creations come to life. This is also a back door directly into Microsoft just like Channel 9 but from a student point of view. This means access to the inside scoop about our products and life working inside Microsoft and information on cool things coming out. This is your community – a place for you to share your tips and tricks and even your problems. Go check out what others are doing and talk about what you think is cool.
I'll admit to being slightly nervous, and I definitely wasn't dressed for success that day. But I suppose that's what they were looking for.

On to a sadder topic. I'm sure many people have already come across this touching story, but it's definitely worth reading (and watching the video) again. To quote Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings, "all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." I'm sure Professor Pausch will spend his remaining time in the best way he knows how.
