UW Retirement Video

"My Last Lecture"

Terry's Graduation Day --The Movie (In 4 parts)

This video captures the excitement in Kane Hall at the University of Washington on 02 December 2014, when I retired from UW's central IT organization after 26 years. The subtitle of the video is "50 years in 100 minutes" and since no one can reasonably be expected to watch a 100 minute video about me, here is a convenient index to facilitate jumping around. (For those in a hurry, I recommend the 100 second summary of my life, in the "Coda" section of Part 2.)
