Meet Sameer Qureshi – another victim of the new WebStudio

January 24, 2009 at 10:10 am 4 comments

Normally my friend Sameer Qureshi is a very private person. If you do a Google search for him, you will probably find very little information on him although he has been involved in a number of interesting activities over the years. Of course when he married a friend of mine he opened himself up to abuse from me – abuse of the nice kind of course! 🙂

Things like getting him to drive me to the Apple Store in Palo Alto the minute it opened up in the morning (actually he was sweet enough to offer to take me there knowing how much I was longing to go to the Apple campus even though I was very short on time), getting him to bring gadgets and books back for me from the US, and  also things like catching hold of him during his recent visit to Karachi and “making him” agree to a Podcast at the CIO Webstudio.

You can hear Sameer talk to Rabia and me about his job at Intel in the Valley – he is a software programmer in a hardware firm. You will also hear Sameer’s opinion on how we can improve the educational standards in Pakistan.

He is a graduate of Carnegie Melon and Stanford and  is guilty of working for organisations like IBM.

Payback time Rabia! Happy 25th Birthday Mac!

    I agree that both academia and industry people should assume responsibility of shaping the graduates into employable & skillful HR for emerging markets.
    About the quality of PhDs, I think it will always be quality for long term success. Because we don’t need them in large numbers teaching at higher education institutes. That’s wasting tax payers’ money on something shining with no use. No?
