Today I had lunch with Amber, a Business System Analyst who works as a contractor for my company. I met her at PhillyCHI, the local chapter of the ACM Computer-Human Interactions special interest group. She is such a smart wise young woman. I am in total awe of young people who are thoughtful and deliberate in their career choices. In comparison, my professional history resembles the random path of a disoriented fly (including repeated crashes against the light bulb and related first degree burns).
The entire PhillyCHI group is impressive. Really smart, passionate young people. It’s nice to have a local group like this. Hey, we are not in San Francisco or New York, but we are still extremely cool.
