Lin Lee on Education and Global Communities


Yesterday it was my pleasure to talk with Lin Lee, who is the vice president of Sun's Global Communities group. Lin is a 20-plus year technology industry veteran who has worked on both the product side and the business strategy side. She currently splits her time between China and Sun HQ in California as she leads the globally-dispersed Global Communities team.

Listen to the short segment below to learn her view of transforming education and IT in the face of a down economy as well as get details on next week's Education Research Conference.

International Earth Day and Sun's CSR


We at Sun always pay close attention to the mark we make -- whether it's innovations that change the industry or our footprint on the planet.

Since formalizing our Sustainability strategy three years ago, we've had many dramatic proof points of our open source philosophy, commitment to the environment, social responsibility and making technology accessible to everyone.
Corporate Responsibility at Sun
Some examples include publishing our annual CSR report, winning the EPA's Climate Protection Award, and opening the new eco friendly data center in Colorado, to name a few.

We are observing International Earth Day today, and I sat down with Marcy Scott Lynn, Director of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility at Sun Microsystems, to talk about environmental accountability for a sustainable earth. Listen to the short segment below for the highlights of Sun's CSR efforts.
