The IEEE Computer Society Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award is one of the industry's most prestigious honors. Friday, September 19th, the IEEE Computer Society announced the presentation of the 2014 award to Microsoft Researcher Emeritus Gordon Bell, for "his exceptional contributions in designing and bringing several computer systems to market that changed the world of high-performance computing and of computing in general, the two most important of these being the PDP-6 and the VAX-11/780."
Among the many achievements in his distinguished career, he has been vice president of research and development at Digital Equipment Corporation, founder of Encore Computer, a co-founder of Ardent Computer, and professor of computer science and electrical engineering at Carnegie-Mellon University. Bell has been an advisor and investor to more than 100 high tech start-up companies and a founding trustee of the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

I tend to work on big IT infrastructure projects which by their nature means I interview many people both internal to the organisation and externally.
