Leaving Microsoft / Organic Baby Food

John Moe

John Wood had a prestigious job at Microsoft, plenty of money, and was solidly on a high tech career track. But then everything got derailed by a visit to a remote village school in Nepal where the library consisted of Danielle Steel novels and travel guides left behind by backpackers. So he did something about it. Leaving Microsoft behind, Wood founded Room to Read, a non-profit organization dedicated to building schools and libraries in the developing world. We talk with him about Microsoft, ambition, and priorities. Plus, we go inside the kitchen of a new baby food company that's trying to change the way the Northwest feeds its infants.
