15 million dollar interview
I have been writing on technology for the Edmonton Journal in Canada for the past 16 years. One of my most memorable moments was meeting and yaking technology with Bill Gates, three times. This is a self portrait of Bill and I strolling down Broadway at the Windows XP launch in New York. In subsequent interviews with Bill at the Tablet PC launch also in New York and Media Center in Los Angeles, Bill kindly digitally scribled more comments on “our” photo on an HP Tablet PC. Most fitting! The 2 hours and 45 minutes of interviews sitting next to one of the richest men in the world is worth more than $15 million of his time. Good thing I didn’t get “Billed”.
My background is photojournalism so one of my favourite topics is digital photography. If I had a penny for every time I was asked, in the office, on the street…even washrooms, what digital camera to buy, I would almost be as rich as Bill!p>
