Feed your mind with UW CSE’s Ed Lazowska on “Lunch Break”

Ed Lazowska and Brad AndersonLunch Break” is an online video series featuring Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President for Enterprise Client & Mobility at Microsoft, interviewing tech industry luminaries from the comfort of his car during – what else? – his lunch break. This week’s episode features UW CSE professor Ed Lazowska, who chatted with Brad about topics ranging from Seattle’s contributions to civilization (coffee, grunge, retail), to UW-based efforts to enable data-intensive discovery in a variety of fields.

Along the way, Ed touches upon what inspired him to pursue computer science in the first place and talks about a golden age in which kids are encouraged to build things.

Brad and Ed cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. Watch part one of the two-part interview here, and read more about the episode on Brad’s blog here.

Stay tuned for part two next week!
