Take off the Sun Hat?
By John Clingan-Oracle on Sep 22, 2004
I was speaking with a Sun customer today and he asked me to "Take off my Sun hat and answer a question". I told him I would like to, but can't. I then addressed the question in a satisfactory manner. What I didn't tell him is why I couldn't take off my Sun hat. It's not a "I wanna keep my job" thing. So what is it?
Taking off my Sun hat would be like wanting to get a vasectomy. OK, perhaps I took the simile thing a bit far in this case. But the point is that the Sun culture is pretty well engrained in who I am. I became familiar with Sun while working with a Sun reseller. I realized quickly that the Sun culture was right up my alley. Take off my Sun Hat? No, I'd get Sun burn.
