A Few Shouts Out

This blog came into existence because Dave Edstrom, Technical Director at Sun, said "Mike, OneStop is cool. How are you going to share this with customers?" As I mentioned in the first post, I thought a long white paper would bore people to tears, thus the blog came to be.
OneStop transitioned from a one person effort to a group effort while the SunSoft SE force was under the leadership of Fadi Cotran. Fadi recognized the value of OneStop and considerably expanded the resource investment. He asked that the entire SunSoft SE Specialist Group participate.
The consistent format and "SE relevant" navigation was developed by Chris Kampmeier around the year 2000. It's a credit to his insight that it lives on. Chris is now a Technical Director at Sun.
Fraser Gardiner took over the management responsibility for OneStop in 2003. His hands on support and superb instincts for what is useful and valuable for an SE in the field did much to further the cause.
At the risk of too much "sucking up", the current Sun emphasis on sharing and transparency comes from our CEO, Jonathan Schwartz. One might even say that it's our job to do this.
