Disruptor

Disruptor

If I may indulge my personal side for a second, congratulations to my father for being named one of Fortune Magazine's top 24 "disruptive innovators"! Since childhood, I've looked up to the passion, precision, integrity and imagination he brought to solving problems of all sizes -- and I continue to be amazed at both the magnitude and relevance of the problems he chooses to tackle today (at age 63, no less!) Needless to say, his approach to engineering (among many other things) has influenced me enormously, and I'm both proud and inspired.

(I could go on at length, but I'll save him the embarrassment ;-)

An Update (From China)

An Update (From China)

Greetings from Beijing! Actually, I feel silly saying that since I've been here for the past 2 months on rotation, and I am only a week away from departure. This is my second trip to Beijing, and I've enjoyed it even more than the first -- though the most exciting part of my trip is yet to come: a week-long trip to Sichuan province -- a place legendary for its beautiful land, beautiful ladies, and divinely spicy cuisine. I plan on assembling a photo album of my trip, which I will post here shortly.

As I must pack for the trip, I have limited time to write, but I would like to make folks aware of a few new items we've been busy on with regard to Solaris networking:

  • Clearview is now an "official" OpenSolaris Project. For those trying to wrap their heads around it, we also now have a set of slides which provide a high-level overview. I'm also happy to report that development is proceeding at a rapid pace, and that some components of Clearview will be available for experimentation shortly (via the OpenSolaris Project page).
  • In WiFi news, our long-term proposal for Solaris WiFi administration is under active discussion on the OpenSolaris Networking Forum. Now's the time to speak up if you have strong opinions on such matters.
