Heather Knight introduces Data, a robotic stand-up comedian that does much more than rattle off one-liners -- it gathers audience feedback (using software co-developed with Scott Satkin and Varun Ramakrishna at CMU) and tunes its act as the crowd responds. Is this thing on? Source: TED.

After 8 years of working with the most talented group of people I have ever met, I have decided to turn over a new leaf, working for a dynamic multinational delivering financial solutions Software in the UK. Today is my last day at AEtech.
Leaving AETech is different than any other job I have left. Joining AETech in 2003 was an easy decision and more strange was to have found success there. I felt like home, and even though it sounds stranger, AETech is the first place I have worked where I feel I am part of the company instead of working for the company.
I am confident that this new step in my career will bring new outcomes. The time will tell. Meanwhile, I will go on blogging, telling you my bests and being in touch.
Many thanks to all of you who have filled with joy the past eight years. I am looking forward to what comes next and don't forget to follow me!.

Today one of my colleagues showed me this great site where you can download all the boot disk images from MSDOS 3.3 to Windows XP. Then you can use these images to start up a virtual machine. These ISO CD-ROM images have been created to allow you to boot your computer from a CD for the purpose of repairing various issues. The CD images are an exact copy of the boot diskette images. There is no advantage to using these ISO images over a diskette image. Some newer computers do not have a floppy drive installed, so these images allow for compatibility of newer machines.
