Thanks Temitayo Olajide - Howard University Campus Advocate Talk

On Tuesday, November 13th, 2007, I was very fortunate to be asked to speak to Howard University by Temitayo Olajide. Temitayo is an extremely bright and passionate young man who is Sun's Campus Advocate at Howard University.

I really enjoyed the night at Howard University and I think the students enjoyed it as well. I was extremely impressed with the students at Howard University.

Realizing that the talk should be both technical and interesting, I decided to give my talk the above title.

The best lesson that I can pass on to young folks is on the magic of compound interest. The above story is from the great book "The Wealthy Barber."

I left the students with the following three things they should always remember:
  • Life is short
  • Death is certain
  • If you do not make your own decisions now, time will make them for you.
