I'm excited to announce that I've been interviewed as part of the ACM Interviews series. Listen to the 1-hour interview or read the summary via this link
ACM Interviews are part of the ACM Learning Center (click on Podcasts).
Over the last 20+ years Stephen Ibaraki's interviews have included famous computer scientists and innovators like Vint Cerf, Eric Schmidt, Leslie Lamport, and more. (Complete list here.) Stephen is involved in many professional organizations, he frequently addresses the United Nations, and has received numerous honors including being the first and only recipient of the Computing Canada IT Leadership Lifetime Achievement Award.
I was quite honored to be asked. (Actually I was confused... when approached at an ACM event last year I assumed Stephen was asking me to nominate people worth interviewing, not asking me to be interviewed!)
I consider this a major career milestone. I am grateful to all those that have helped me get to where I am today.
