Back at Work
By marchamilton on Jan 08, 2007
While I didn't read email last week, I certainly didn't go without using the web, albeit only via my trusty Treo 650. Rather than wait in what seemed like an endless line, I signed my kids up for ski lessons online one morning. I also purchased root beer extract for my son which was waiting for us when we returned home, somehow an item that neither mom nor dad managed to get during holiday shopping. I also kept track of the weather forecast for the next day, not really sure why as I knew I would be out skiing no matter if it was 40 degrees and sunny or 4 degrees and blowing snow, but it somehow felt good to know. Anyone who doesn't think the web continues to be a growth market for information technology hasn't been reading cnn.com.
It is going to be another exciting year at Sun, with new web tier solutions including the second generation Niagara 2 processor, new x64 and SPARC servers, and a host of other exciting developments. Stay tuned, and always remember, skis and rocks don't mix (luckily, the cuts and bruises were limited to my face, and my marathon training is still going quite well).
