Hello Channel 9!

My name is Jerome Holman.  I am a graduate student working on my master’s degree at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA.  I currently work for Apple even though I recently accepted an internship with Microsoft.  I have been the campus OS X evangelist, driving the CS department to change the beginning curriculum from using Visual Studio.Net to Java (that runs great on Mac OS X).  I also worked closely with to help convince Virginia Tech to build the 10 teraflop super computer, System X, out of Apple Power Mac G5s.  You can see my pictures on my homepage:

My personal mantra that drives me forward:

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square hole, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them, because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who'll do it.
