Q&A with Scott Hanselman
What is your job title? Where do you work?
Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, an eFinance enabler.
Dream job if you didn't work with computers?
I'd probably be a nurse or a high school English teacher.
Where do you currently live?
Heh, I have none. I blog. I play the Xbox 360. I change my son's diapers and read The Economist to him.
Favorite sports team?
I'm not a sports guy, more of a stand-up comic. So, if stand-up was a sport, I'd say Gary Gulman, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart . . . if they were a team.
It was to be a fireman. So far my father and brother are fireman, but I'm too much of a wimp, so I'll live vicarously through their exploits.
