Nadella tells ABC News about women-in-tech flub, daily routine

Microsoft didn’t make a big fuss about Satya Nadella’s first anniversary as CEO, but they did invite ABC News in for an interview.

The main segment of that conversation, which ran on ABC’s World News Tonight Wednesday, spent about half of its time on Nadella’s comments in October suggesting that women in technology should trust the system rather than demand raises. A contrite Nadella said he was “absolutely schooled” by his mother after the comments.

Separate, online video clips include a discussion on cybersecurity, a demo of Microsoft’s Skype translator, and a set of rapid-fire questions from ABC’s Rebecca Jarvis covering topics like what time Nadella wakes up (7 a.m.) and who he’d trade places with for a week (legendary Australian cricketer Don Bradman).

Nadella also told Jarvis that he listens to music on his phone, but couldn’t remember the last song he heard. That’s probably a good sign for those hoping the chief executive is focusing his attention on running the giant company.
