Unless you get screwed like I did. The previous few years at MIT had featured then-president Bill Clinton, then-vice-president Al Gore, then-UN secretary general Kofi Annan, and the year before (which would have been my year had I not done a 5-year bachelor/masters program) were Click and Clack from NPR's Car Talk (MIT alumni).

She's not even technically minded, she's basically pure businessperson, so really didn't have much connection to MIT at all. Sure, she was the first female Fortune 20 CEO and MIT was (and maybe still is) trying really hard to encourage women in engineering, but she was about as far from an engineer as you can get so she didn't even work as a good example.

"Score one for the little wooden boy."
Totally unrelated, but this song reminds of golfing:
