Ok so this is going to sound like a really strange story but, last night I sat opposite an Ex-president of Intel! His name was Gilbert and I was unable to get his last name and he was of French origin. If anyone knows an ex president list or something like that I would be much obliged! He told me all about Andy Grove and how he thought Steve Jobs was a very charismatic guy from having many meetings with him. He was also talking about how Steve's illness really affected him and it was really interesting to get a first person's perspective on it all! He also said that he found Jerry Yang of Yahoo much more interesting than the two google boys. His main job at intel was to take to leaders (princes, kings, presidents etc...) and to discuss what incentives and reasons they would provide for intel building a factory there. He joked about how much power he had walking round with a possible $7bn investment portfolio. He has met President Bush (didn't speak to highly of him) and ex priminister Tony Blair (who he said was a very genuine and nice guy). I also heard a funny story about giving bill clinton and his daughter Chelsea a tour of Dubai and when they got hungry they simply ate in a Pizzeria, he laughed at how people would be pointing that there was Bill Clinton simply having a pizza with his daughter, he said he was a great guy and was really kind when people came up to him to shake his hand or get his autograph. The whole experience from last night has really been a blur, he also was talking about Michael Dell and how he doesn't think much of him. What I found amazing was that he talked about these supergiants of the technology industry as though they were just acquaintances, which of course for him they were but I just found it really odd! If anyone can find the surname of this guy I would be happy to find a picture online and compare to the one I took last night! Being a 16 year old I found it amazing that he was just so open with me and had no fear talking about his work or anything and I am truly grateful for the experience! So I just wanted to share it because it really has made a big difference to me! Oh and he has a new iMac aswell!
