Tap, tap, tap - is this thing on?

Yes, it is that time. Time for me start writing down all the things that run through my head and consume my time. So hello world!
What can you expect? I am the CTO for the Services division at Sun, so you can expect much content around Services related technologies, our strategies and interesting stuff that we are doing. I also spend a good deal of time talking with customers, press and analysts so you can also expect to see some of those discussions play out here as well.
So you may wonder why I called my blog “The Dining Philosopher”. Well, going back to my geek roots, I spent a lot of time in the past focusing on large scale and massively parallel systems, threading, concurrency and performance related topics. If you can see where I am going, there is common example used in computer science to illustrate synchronization and blocking called the dining philosophers problem. I thought the name appropriate to my background. The name also has a double entendre. First I like to eat and for those of you who know me personally, I believe I physically represent mans ability to consume quite well. And B, I hope this is a place where some philosophical discussions take place. Now you know.
That's it for now. Until next time...
