Former Microsoft Employee #2: Nikhil KamkolkarIn 1993-1994 I rewrote the IPX network stack for NT. One of the other developers working on this project was named Nikhil Kamkolkar.
Nikhil eventually left Microsoft, did various things, including a stint at Softimage in Los Angeles, working with special effects people in the film industry (you can read his bio, although it gets ahead of the story here).
He had talked about producing movies, and now he has actually done so. In fact he was written, directed, produced, and starred in a movie called Indian Cowboy. Which is playing in Seattle. At the Independent South Asian Film Festival. On Monday. He sent me email inviting me, but I'm not sure I can make it.
It is strange, to say the least, to see this guy that I used to spend time wading through the NT kernel debugger with, up there in a movie trailer.
Nikhil has also been in the play Indian Ink, and he has a production company with two more movies in development. And like Laura Ruderman, he's younger than me! Although it is likely, if he has kids, that they are not as cute as mine.
