Seema Ramchandani is the performance and controls PM on the Silverlight team. Seema talks about how cool Silverlight is including it being FREE, runs on the Mac, and leverages existing developer skills but she also tells us how she moved from being in the business of brains to software. Yes, brains! Before joining Microsoft almost 5 years ago, Seema was getting her master’s degree at Brown in the area of brain sciences, which is the convergence of applied math, computer science, and neuro science. (Is she a smarty pants or what?!) Specifically she was working on implanting chips into the motor cortex of humans so locked-in patients can control a cursor. Pretty cool, eh?
