System Overload (graduation speech)

One of the biggest data centers in the world is situated in Camp Williams just above Lake Utah. It has more than 1 million square feet and it has cost more than 2 billion dollars to build. The data center is home to the many servers of the National Security Agency (NSA). The agency uses them to store the data they collect on a daily basis with a collection of programs under the codename PRISM. It basically means they collect everything on everyone who uses the internet.

Getting to know each other

Getting to know each other

The first fellow I’ve met after disembarking in United States was Neha Dixit, from India. For the very first time I’ve put my eyes on her I knew we would get along.

And it was not because she has tried to be nice or she has made me laugh with some stupid joke – the other way around must be true. It was just that empathy we feel for no reason at all for some people. And I was very lucky because she is my roommate in the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul (MN), our first stop in an adventure that will take us to ten States and 15 American cities in a two-month period.
