Sipping Sun Kool-aid

I got a kick out of new Sun employee and BSC blogger Jason Calloway's maiden post. He admitted "sipping" the Sun Kool-aid.

Glad you are aboard, Jason, drinking Kool-aid with the rest of us.

Sun Identity Manager Developer Wiki

dsc_9622_editedMy hat is off to Sun Identity Management expert Jeff Bounds, who set up Sun Identity Manager Developer Wiki on wikis.sun.com:
"This is a repository for Identity Manager customers, partners, and Sun Employees to contribute ideas, code, and tips on how to best use Identity Manager. Anyone can contribute, our only requirement is that you register."
I look forward to monitoring and contributing to this open forum, which I believe will become a vital part of the Sun Identity Management community.

Executive Briefing Center ala Americas Sales Meeting

ASM2008Lest you ever wonder what goes on in Sun's Executive Briefing Center, here's proof. :)

Actually, this series of shots was taken in a photo booth on the exhibit floor at the Sun Microsystems Americas Sales Meeting held in National Harbor, MD, to encourage participation in Sun's Executive Briefing Center.

We do take activities in the real Sun EBC in Menlo Park, CA, a bit more seriously.

Rich Green: Identity Everywhere

In a speech given yesterday by Rich Green, Sun's Executive Vice President, Software, at the Sun Americas Sales Meeting, he remarked, "Planet Earth needs Identity everywhere. It's not just a good idea. It's the law."

Well said, Rich. Couldn't agree more.

Air and Space Museum - A National Treasure

X-29 rocket plane in Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.Last night, AMD sponsored a gala event in conjuntion with the Sun Microsystems Americas Sales Meeting at one of my all time favorite museums, the National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall in Washington, DC. With exhibits ranging from a re-creation of the first manned hot-air balloon to a celebration of space travel, this Smithsonian Institution museum provides a wide ranging and exciting overview of the wonderful innovation that has transpired in man's quest to escape the gravity of our world and range quickly across its broad expanse.

It is inspiring to me that in a period of just over 100 years, we have advanced from the time when powered flight was a tenuous experiment of a pair of enterprising bicycle repairmen to where global air travel is a natural part of our everyday lives. We collectively stand on the broad shoulders of countless creative people, whose innovation, courage and tenacity have worked wonders in our world.

What will the next hundred years will bring?

Sun Sales Fireworks

Fireworks display at Sun National Sales Meeting.I am one of 3000 colleagues spending the week at Sun Microsystems' Americas Sales Meeting held at the Gaylord National Convention Center near Washington, DC, this week.

Perhaps the outstanding fireworks show we were treated to last night is a fitting metaphor for the great hopes and plans we have for the new fiscal year!

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.
