Chances are you’ll end up working for one. I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot. If you can't make it good, at least make it look good. Intellectual property has the shelf life of a banana. Life is not fair; get used to it. Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose. The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow. INSPIRING SPEECH AT IIT50 : INSPIRING SPEECH AT IIT50 The impact, of course, has been worldwide, not just on India and the seven campuses but the research and the incredible talent is having a huge impact. Just one example of that is the incredible revolution taking place in India where literally hundreds of thousands and in the future millions of jobs will be created by taking the educational focus of the country and applying that computer science and high value service type activities and connecting up with the needs for those capabilities not only in India but around the world. It's amazing to see that happening and I think IIT has had a huge role in providing the education and the vision that's led to that wonderful result. IIT and Microsoft do have a lot in common, an optimism about the future, a belief that fundamental science will lead to breakthroughs that will let us solve some of the toughest problems that mankind faces, a belief that we can provide better tools than ever before and that we've really just scratched the surface. Sometimes people say to me, you know, "Haven't you achieved a lot; why don't you retire?" And my simple answer is that the original vision that I had for the personal computer, along with Paul Allen, was a machine that was far more capable, far more straightforward, far more in use by more people than what we have today. And so in some sense if you take a big enough vision, as Microsoft did, you never in your lifetime run out of work to be done to achieve that vision. IIT has certainly taken on a grand vision. Even as an incredibly world-class institution, it keeps challenging itself to renew itself to move to the forefront. And it's hard to think of anything like IIT anywhere in the world. It is a very unique institution. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT : ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I would like to express my gratitude to all those who gave me the possibility to complete this thesis.
