I attended the Fox IT Awards last Tuesday night. The event was fun and also interesting. Adrian Gardner, from NASA, received the Fox IT Leader Award. K. Venkatesh Prasad, from Ford, received the Fox IT Innovator Award. Marc Snyder, from KPMG, received the Fox It Awards for Distinguished Alumni. All three of the winners spoke to the audience about encouraging students to use technology to change the world. Congratulations to Professor Johnson on winning the Teacher of the Year award. I met Dean Moshe Porat at the event. A few of us talked to him about the networking, and how it is the key component for someone to be successful. The conversation we had with him was interesting and informative.
