The SEI Fellow Series: Nancy Mead

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Nancy R. Mead

"Even in high school my very first formal teaching job was tutoring one of my classmates who wanted to go to college but was struggling with the academic math requirements. That caused me to be interested in it. Then, at IBM, I was manager of an education team that taught software engineering and I continued to teach at universities part-time, here and there, when the opportunity presented itself."

"The manufacturers making these things might have been a business for 50 or 60 years. They are great at making cars or refrigerators or light bulbs. They have now, in some cases, literally bolted on a small embedded computer with a number of network connections."

Open Systems Architectures: When & Where to Be Closed

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Donald Firesmith

"There are people out there who are very happy doing things the way they have always done it. That can sometimes be contractors. It can sometimes be government personnel. Nothing in this podcast should be construed as an excuse not to use openness. We want to use openness where it makes sense, where it is appropriate, and where other quality requirements, other issues don’t take precedence."
