“Lunch 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.
Stay tuned for part two next week!
