    Thanks.  I'm intrigued by the work she alludes to around 15:50 about the connection between usability and software architecture which I managed to find here --> http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~bej/usa/ .  think I'll try reading a few of the papers (hope they're not all behind the ACM paywall)

    re the joke at the end, I certainly hope there are plenty more women at all levels at MSFT who would make interesting interview subjects.  as far as higher-level/more prominent women goes, do you think you could get an interview with Maria Klawe who joined the MSFT board of directors a few months back?  I'm curious about her work/thoughts on serious games.

    Maria is indeed on our list to interview!  We're hoping to catch her this fall when she's in town.  Stay tuned.
