Adnan Lawai of Folio 3 on “In the Line of Wire”
Adnan, has an MS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT, has worked for 3 years as a Research Assistant in the MIT Media Lab, as an Engineer in General Instruments and as part of the technical team at SGI in the US, as well as VP and CTO of Clickmarks. He moved to Pakistan to head up Folio 3 in 2005.
In his conversation with me, Adnan highlights some of the exciting new projects that Folio 3 is involved in – most of which are being developed by the team right here in Pakistan and at times in synergy with the Folio 3 offices in Bulgaria and in Silicon Valley.
It is so interesting to see that the kind of work being done in Pakistan is not low level outsourcing (although no doubt some of that is also happening) but cutting edge design and development work and that teams here are headed by highly qualified, well trained professionals like Adnan Lawai who are passing on that professionalism and those standards and ethics to the young people who they work with. Stand aside all cynics. Make way for more of these stories to come to the fore in future episodes of “In the Line of Wire”.
