I had the most amazing experience this week – I met a future world leader.
I had the opportunity to accompany 10-year old Microsoft Certified Professional, Arfa Karim Randhawa, while she took a tour of MS Studios given by my wonderful friend Jean. Jean took the time to explain much of the technology found in the studios such as how different lights work and the different ways video is interlaced on screens and it was quite fascinating. The tour culminated with Arfa being recorded singing the theme song from the Titanic and we watched as a technician mixed the recording with ProTools. I was impressed with how articulate and fearless she was. Honestly, I would not be surprised to hear she became one of the great thinkers of our time.
This is a great article from the Seattle daily paper (be sure to click the sound clips to hear her talk!):
