Roberto takes over ICSI


Roberto Pieraccini, who was my boss at SpeechWorks (among other notable accomplishments), is going to be the new director of U. C. Berkeley’s International Computer Science Institute (ICSI).

Now this is a succession event I can (and did) wholeheartedly endorse. They asked me to write a recommendation letter as a former employee (his new colleagues all report to him; he’ll report to the trustees). I can paraphrase what I said: I’d be more than happy to work for Roberto again.
