Peter Klein was a student of mine at Columbia University in 1992.
He went to work for me at VNI, when we launched the business.
Later, he became a producer at 60- Minutes and then a professor at the University of British Columbia in Canada, and finally launched and ran the Global Reporting Center.
All of this by way of explaining how I came across his posting on Facebook.
Peter, like me, was of Hungarian origin, and when he was working for me at VNI, he also had a side line sharpening knives.
I thought this was a bit odd, but his family in Hungary had made a living as knife sharpeners.
So it was with no little amount of interest that I saw a video from Japan he posted - a story of a knife sharpener.
That it became the #1 viewed video on Youtube only underscores his taste in video.. and hobbies.
