Subcontinental schmoozing

SAN DIEGO — One of Monday’s sessions at FiRe was a roundtable discussion of future technologies with chief technology officers from Microsoft, AMD, Hewlett-Packard, EMC, Intuit, Accenture and Getty Images.

Sitting alone in the audience was Azim Premji, chairman of Wipro, one of the major Indian technology companies. He’s a business celebrity in the subcontinent, the equivalent of Jack Welch or Bill Gates, but in San Diego he was just one of the nerds. Sort of.

Premji stuck around after the session to shake hands and chat with Microsoft Chief Technical Officer Craig Mundie, who beelined straight to the man from Bangalore as the crowd broke up.
