My winters feel so warm
So Craig Barrett is retiring as the chair of Intel. The last time I interviewed Mr. Barrett was in 2005, just after he stepped down from being CEO. The part that I put into print was mainly about WiMax and how Intel was working with Robert Redford to use the Sundance Film Festival as the scene of the first movie ever to be delivered to an audience using that technology.
But I also remember that Mr. Barrett gave me a delightfully personal description of the server room he has at the heart of his Montana home. I expressed my jealousy of every aspect except his electricity bill, at which he joked that the room gives off enough heat to keep the house warm throughout the Montana winter.
