Keith Combs and I have a podcast show called the IT Investigators. We like to have fun interviewing a variety of guests on wide ranging topics and this episode is no exception. So Keith calls me one day and says he has setup and interview for us. I asked who is it? He calmly and simply it was going to be none other than Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Tony Scott. Very Cool!
The body of questions center around general information technology skills and how they are changing in various situations. Some of the answers will surprise you. They certainly did me.
Keith and I also wondered about Tony’s time at Walt Disney Company. I mean after all, it is the magic kingdom so I just couldn’t resist asking about casual Friday and exploring your inner self with the characters of Disney. Tony was a good sport about it and talks about his stint as a bear.
The podcast is right at twenty four minutes and although the cell phone gods intervened right at the end, we managed to get a number of questions answered. I think you’ll find it is a good listen. Hope you enjoy it.
