Spotting Future Stars
In 1997, I had the pleasure of being the Editor in Chief of FamilyPC Magazine (now defunct). When we did a story on “web wizards” – young kids who were doing cool things with PCs – we chose Vinny Pasceri, then the webmaster of Saychem High School in Long Island. Pasceri and his team built their high school’s website using Microsoft Front Page, and at the time they were not only one of the very few schools to have a web page, but they had a really attractive one with photos and graphics. Pasceri went on to study at Rensselear PolyTech Institute, and after graduating, he ran his own company for a short time. Pasceri has been at Microsoft since 2002, and today, he is the senior program manager on the Bing Experience Team. Good to know that talent shines and that our picks for rising stars were spot on.
