I just got back from spending a few days with some great people. We just finished our "Geek" Executive Advisory Conference (EAC). I call it the geek version because every so often we host the best and brightest CTOs and other technical senior executives from some of the most exciting companies from around the world.
We spent our time talking about technologies that are changing the industry, how Sun's products and technology is performing from their perspective and how our technology direction fits within their world. It was such a great group of technologists. The conversations were great and the energy level was higher then I have seen in a long time. It was exciting to see some of the top companies in the world say things like "Sun is one of the last real innovative technology companies left on the planet" and "Your technology rocks!, I hope the industry follows you". And not all of these companies are, or should I say were, Sun friendly. Some are current customers, some are past customers and some are not Sun friendly at all. However I hope all came away from our meetings with a much better understanding about Sun and our very bright future.
