Last Friday I was invited to my local Microsoft campus here in Charlotte for Minority Student Day. The event, which is in its’ 8th year, is hosted by Blacks @ Microsoft. Blacks @ Microsoft is a company sponsored organization for…you guessed it Blacks who work at Microsoft. While I was impressed with all the great talent that works in the Charlotte campus I was more impressed with the students. Many of them went beyond just recognizing the value of technology in their day-to-day lives they were creators. Check out the video below where I interviewed the keynote speaker, former Carolina Panther Mick Rucker, and 2 super smart students from Philip O’Berry Academy of Technology:
