The honorary Dr. John Maeda, was attending Simon Fraser University's graduation reception. As the president of the student union of the School of Interactive Arts + Technology at Simon Fraser University, I knew this was too great of an opportunity to miss out on. Taking quick action, I contacted John Maeda's assistant, organized an event where students could watch the interview in person and live, and provided an edited version online that students can view later. His interview benefited a lot of students, as it addressed many questions related to the industry.
