Mentoring with Girls Who Code

This summer was an educational summer for me. When I saw that Akamai was hosting a Girls Who Code session this summer, I couldn't have been more excited to contribute to the program.

Happy 17th Anniversary Akamai!

On this date in 1998 - 17 years ago - Danny Lewin and I incorporated Akamai.  That day marked the official start of Akamai as a business, and our team of about a dozen people (mostly MIT undergrads) moved out of my office at MIT and into a small rented space in Cambridge.  None of us had any prior experience in business.  We believed in our technology, we believed in

One Extra Hour - What Do You Do With It?
