smf(5): Chairman's Award
By sch on Apr 26, 2005
smf(5) project team was honoured with the Chairman's
Award for Innovation today, along with 14 other teams or individuals at
Sun. I had a camera with me, and snapped a few pictures but, since the
award ceremony was televised, don't have any from that part of the day.
Afterwards, we gathered in the Menlo Park campus's amphitheater [TerraServer]
for some photos. I managed to capture
our sister team in Predictive Self-Healing, the Fault Management Architecture team; and
the CDDL team (but after they started to move towards one end of the amphitheatre).
We had a short lunch afterwards, but longer conversations with the other award
winners, the nominating
committee members and other executives:
I borrowed our newer Canon PowerShot SD300 for the day, because it's so
much smaller than the S30. I had a little trouble with
gphoto2, but I put the SD card directly in the slot on my
Acer Ferrari running S10—which mounted directly and seamlessly.
smf(5) was the product of many people's contributions.
There are team members who could only participate for a limited period
or who are no longer at Sun, and many forms of contribution from all
parts of the company—the end result couldn't have been reached
without all the shared and distributed lifting. My thanks.
A small and quiet thanks to Jonathan for gesturing me into the studio camera's field of view.
