Jeff Maurone, rising fourth-year at Villanova, posts a nice, respectful summary of his intern reception at Bill Gates’ house. Very cool, Jeff.
It makes me wish Microsoft had been more visibly supportive of blogging culture when I interned there in the summer of 2001. I had the “intern BBQ at Bill’s” experience, and remember it fondly, but didn’t write anything at the time and so can’t remember any fun details. Except the “donut” of people wanting to talk to the world’s richest man. That definitely happened in 2001 as well.
