Vacation: IIT conference in Santa Clara, CA

As I mentioned earlier, for my vacation I went to the 2007 IIT conference. There were some pretty impressive people speaking there, like the CEO of GE and Hillary Clinton. Some people who were more of interest to me, though, were people like the president of Stanford (who was one of the major researchers who developed the RISC architecture), the originator of FTP, and Manindra Agarwal (a professor at IIT who was the main researcher who developed the AKS primality test, which is an algorithm to check if a number is prime in polynomial-logarithmic time), whom I personally talked to.
