McNealy Enters Hall Of Fame

In case you missed it, Sun Chairman Scott McNealy was inducted into the Bay Area Business Hall of Fame on Tuesday, October 2. The Bay Area Council created the Hall in 1995.  Scott was inducted at an annual dinner which this year was held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.  Of course, it was sold out.

After serving as Sun's CEO for years, Scott stepped up as full-time Chairman of Sun in 2006.  In this role he spends most of his time with Sun's top customers (his unofficial titles are Chief Sales Officer, Chief Evangelist, Chief Door Opener).  He's also Chairman of Sun Federal, the arm of Sun's business that handles our work with the U.S. government.

And talk about frequent flier miles: Scott logged 150,000+ miles last fiscal year on a plane.  Common destinations include Washington D.C., Japan, China and India.  

He is also passionate about education.  He's working aggressively on a non-profit project, Curriki, which delivers universal access to K-12 education via the open source model.  Think of it as wikipedia for schools.

Scott also shoots a mean game of golf.

Hiya all,

Scott's also being honoured as a Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer Society (BCS) on the 14th of November this year too.

You can learn more about the event at this entry on my 'blog:

And you may even be able to still get tickets on the main BCS events site - if your in London, UK, that night (link available on my 'blog, "eclectic", above).

All the best,

Wayne Horkan
