CSE’s Ian King: “Senior Vintage Systems Engineer” at Paul Allen’s new Living Computer Museum

A wonderful AP article featuring UW CSE Professional Masters Program alum Ian King:

“For tourists with an interest in Seattle’s role as a high-tech hub, there hasn’t been much here to see, other than driving over to Microsoft headquarters in suburban Redmond to take pictures of a bunch of boring buildings.

“But Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has just opened the Living Computer Museum, with displays of old machines — all in working order — along with a geeky wish list of items he’d like to add, just in case anybody out there has an old tape drive or super-computer sitting around.”

The Living Computer Museum’s #2 geek – Paul certainly deserves the #1 ranking – is UW CSE Professional Masters Program alum Ian King, whose title is “Senior Vintage Systems Engineer.”
