Glenn Brunette's Shared Reading on Safari and Sun's READ Community

As Information & Knowledge Services experts at Sun, one of the things our team does is enable employees to share what they know. Not only do we provide the right information for employees to do their work - creating competitive advantage, smarter decision making and an informed organization - but also enable the connections for employees to share and learn from others.
Our Safari Books Online services is very popular with the Sun technical community and as part of that, we've partnered with Sun's Global Services Engineering (GSE) team to create a READ community within Sun - "reading recommendations from people you trust" - that includes connections to content in Safari (Sun employees can access the READ community on SunSpace).
In conjunction with GSE and the READ community, we have created lists in Safari for the recommended readings that happen to be books or videos and are in Safari Books Online. Below is an example from a Sun Solaris Security expert, Glenn Brunette. This image is of the recommended readings that come from books in Safari Books Online that Glenn recommends - and, as an expert, we care about what Glenn recommends, reads and thinks.
Not all content in the READ community is connected to Safari - other content can include blogs, experts, websites, Twitter feeds and other technical or business content that people at Sun recommend.
All this in an effort to partner with experts across Sun and enable them to learn from others and share their knowledge!
