Kim Cameron is an architect in the Windows Identity and Access management group at Microsoft. Kim is the author of the Laws of Identity which is a way of looking at how identity can and perhaps should be handled on the Internet. Ron Jacobs has a good audio blog interview with Kim at Channel 9. If you talk about privacy, security, personal safety and related concepts in your class (and you probably should) than this interview is something you may want to use in your class. I found it very interesting.
Also the latest Women in Technology interview at Channel 9 is with Lori Lampkin, the Group Program Manager for Visual Studio Team Foundation. She's been at Microsoft for 15 years and her's is an important managerial position of a very technical group.
