And as technology continues to evolve and
new markets are developed abroad, Gates not
only anticipates the demand for computer sci-
entists will grow, but that the importance of the
field will become even more far-reaching.
"We are entering the golden age," Gates said
on the various new emerging technologies he
believes will streamline facets of everyday life.
From portable tablet PCs that will become the
next generation of textbooks to mobile phones
that can translate languages, Gates said com-
puter scientists are on the frontier of innovation
because they make new technologies a reality.
He added that unlike the stereotypical image
of a computer scientist locked in a cubicle, most
simply do not just program computer codes,
but work through interacting with co-workers
and consumers to create products.
"For me it's the most fun field to be in.
It's the most interesting time that there's ever
been," Gates said.
In a press conference, Gates said to increase
interest in the computer science, Microsoft has
been partnering with universities to improve
the image of the field among college students,
while also attempting to revamp education in
lagging high schools.
While Gates said college campuses are
at the forefront of using new technologies in
the classroom, he added that learning would
most likely only become digitized to a point.
Gates added that the social interactions avail-
able only in a classroom setting are necessary
to facilitate education. "It's not the minute the
lectures are on the web, they go, 'Well that's
all I need. Why should I pay tuition? I'm just
going to live at home'."
Although Gates would not comment on
Google's bid to digitize the University librar-
ies' collections, he said, "I think Google is try-
ing to go on the thing, 'Okay we'll do it unless
you object,' whereas they should probably do
it on the basis, 'Okay we'll do it when we get
permission to do it'."
Gate's speech at the University was for the
Goff Smith Lecture, the highest external honor
given by the College of Engineering, awarded
for outstanding achievement in science and
Martha Pollack, associate chair for the
department of electrical engineering and com-
puter science, said of the lecture, "It was in
contrast to what you read in the media. The IT
industry is thriving."
Engineering junior Alexis Mackenzie said,
"It's definitely important to get more people to
go into (electrical engineering and computer
science), especially more girls."

tion in order to retain their tickets.
According to the Athletic Department, the
preferred seating program affects approximately
31 percent of seats in Michigan Stadium and
about 45 percent of season ticket holders.
Duderstadt called the program "extortion"
because it requires people to pay for something
- the right to buy tickets - that would normal-
ly be free.
The program is being phased in over a two-
year period, so this year season ticket holders
were only required to pay half the normal fee.
Six percent of football season ticket holders
did not renew their tickets this year. Usually,
the number of people who give up their seats is
closer to one or two percent, said Joseph Park-
er, associate athletic director for development.
Parker said a little fewer than 900 people said
they couldn't afford the new fee but would like to
move to seats that did not require a fee.
"When you look at what has happened at other
schools (when they implemented similar pro-
grams), we were pleased that so many people
decided to stick with us and support Michigan
football," Parker said about people giving up their
In addition to the preferred seating program,
the Athletic Department this year made a one-
time offer to season ticket holders to transfer their
tickets to someone else for a fee of $500. Season
tickets are normally non-transferable. The Athlet-
ic Department had 12,000 seat transfers this year
- throughout the stadium, not just in the sections
with the fee from the preferred seating program.
The transfer program brought in $6 million, but
Duderstadt expressed concern that corporations,
and not Michigan fans and alumni, will own the
majority of seats in Michigan Stadium.
Prof. Jens Zorn and his wife have taught at the
University for more than 30 years - and they
have had four season tickets since they arrived.
Zorn said he and his wife paid the fee this year,
but they do not plan on paying it next year, when
he estimates the cost will rise to $150 per person
per game - more than twice what it is now - for
an afternoon of watching Michigan football.
"This price is well beyond what most of us
could regard as reasonable cost for family enter-
tainment," Zorn said. "It seems clear that the best
seats in the Michigan Stadium will increasingly
be populated by persons for whom cost does not
Many other schools around the coun-
try - including Big Ten rivals Ohio State,
Michigan State and Wisconsin - have imple-
mented a required donation for the best seats
in their football stadiums. At Michigan State,
it is called the "scholarship seating" program
because the money generated is used for
scholarships, and the fee ranges from $200
Brian Long, a former president of the Univer-
sity's alumni association chapter in Milwaukee,
is opposed to the seat licenses because it divides
the fans between the wealthy and non-wealthy.
He said that when it implemented the preferred
seating program, the Athletic Department justi-
fied it partially by saying other universities had
similar programs, but that this argument left him
"I think Michigan has always prided itself on
being a leader rather than a follower," said Long,
who donates $100 each year to the University's
At the same time it implemented the required
donation, the Athletic Department changed the
way it organized the waiting list for tickets. It
used to be based on the number of years a per-
son had been waiting for tickets, but now the Ath-
letic Department uses a priority point system that
considers other factors such as whether a person
graduated from Michigan, whether he played a
varsity sport, whether he has season tickets for
other sports and donations to both the Athletic
Department and the University.
"We just decided that there's probably a
better representation of a person's relation-
ship with the University and the department,"
