I shot and edited this interview inside Intel headquarters, and although my production skills were lacking (poor audio, lighting…) I was beside myself as Maloney focused and delivered answers to some tough questions.

I later tuned in for his keynote, which can be seen here or highlights below, and was truly in awe at his expresiveness, passion, charm and twinkle that often shined from his eyes.

He has been so devoted to Intel for decades, and that determination has helped  his  recovery from a severe stroke that pulled him out of work last year.  He lost his ability to speak, but worked with experts to retain his brain and when I was shooting this video and watching his Computed keynote, I couldn’t help but keep smiling.  Maloney is a leader who leads by example, by doing and participating.
