My colleague, Stephen Davis started blogging at sun, a week or so ago. Stephen works in Sun UK's marketing department. I know that as we read Cluetrain and join the blogosphere, we need to sneer at marketing and marketers, but Stephen is definitely not a member of "the department of colouring in". He and I agree that the job of marketing is to understand customer businesses, and hence their customers so we can make propositions of value and understand the business cases for change. The best marketing people need to understand their own business and their customer's, and Stephen is one of the best. I'm sure that Stephen's blogs will be of interest to many who work in the IT and Telecommunications markets. Stephen Davis started blogging
I spend my time working with some amazing people who are trying to 'save the world' from itself with regard to climate change and who are working to create a more fair and just society within which we all can participate. I get to talk to people from all walks of life, political persuasion, colour, caste and creed and have been given fantastic and passionate support from the leadership team in Sun UK to be the 'voice crying in the wilderness'.
He is one the most articulate people I know in the benefits of green computing. Sun's green computing propositions are based on CPU design, thin client and server design, but Richard paints a great picture of classrooms full of silent sun rays, instantly available as the students slot their Java cards into the card readers, compared with thirty PC's spinning up their disks and fans, and the opening of the windows to dissipate the heat. Another blog to enjoy.
A third wise man, is Eric Bezille, who apart from being the owner of the nose mentioned here.... and the organiser of Sun France's wine drinker's club is Sun's lead architect in the Systems Practice in France. His professional interests and expertise range from database platform solutions architecture, through service management to business alignment. As one of the ambassador community organisers, he presented to Sun's data centre ambassadors about aligning Sun's bids and the win themes with business strategic planning techniques. He is Sun's lead architect supporting Orange (Telecom France) who have a split site Oracle RAC database platform, one of the first in the world of this size and distance.
