Goodbye Sun!

Today marks the end of a wonderful 9+ years at Sun for me.  I've been a Jiro Consultant, Network Storage Engineer, NetBeans Engineer, NetBeans Evangelist, and a Global Technology Manager.  I couldn't have asked for a more rewarding 9 years.

Sun has given the world so much for free (as in beer).  I'm happy that I was able to be part of that.  Sun has changed the world forever in a positive way.  Sun = Open Source.  Sun has set the standard for open source software.

 I have so many great memories working at Sun and cherish all the great Sunisms and Scottisms:

  • The Network IS the computer(for sure!)
  • .Not
  • "Kick butt and have fun!"
  • JavaOne
  • Beer bash Fridays
  • Sun Tech Days
  • SunTEA (made famous by IBIS)
  • Sun time (the real time people show up for meetings)
  • Work From Home, iWork, Open Work
  • "Please remove me from this alias" email storms
  • etc., etc.

 Thanks for the fabulous journey Sun!  I loved every minute.
