    • HI David! Thanks for posting the interview. I just want to point out a typo – there is no “e” in Silcon! We’re referencing the element that makes computers so fast, not the compound that people use for breast implants! haha. Please change the sentence referring job applicants to siliconsisters dot ca so that there is no e.
