Today, in our first SE24 lecture Owen announced some lavish prizes!
Normally when Owen gives out lavish prizes they are of the chocolaty, coconutty variety. Today though, the prizes were for the highest marks for SE20 coursework. Although I waited with baited breath in case someone had managed to beat my 95.5% average, it was no surprise that I took first prize. A girl named Mai took second place and my esteemed colleague and house mate, Kieran won a very close 3rd place. Between us we got £200 in bonds out of Microsoft. Quite ironic that myself and Kieran are amongst the most vement anti-Microsoft students in the year.
To add to this we are now due to meet a Microsoft representative in a few weeks time. I wonder what I should say. I obviously cannot be rude, this would be bad form. On the other hand I don’t want to give them the impression that I am a fan of their company’s software (or their business ethics for that matter).
