John Henning is SPECtacular

Another SPECtacular award from the SPEC annual meeting: John Henning of Sun Microsystems is secretary of the Open Systems Group steering committee. John has been the driving force behind improvements to our policy document. This is crucial to efficient operation of the organization, especially as so many new organizations have joined SPEC and so many new participants have joined into the work even from long time SPEC member companies. John is also the one who reminds all of us to pause in our lecturing and really listen to our adversaries, the dissident minority voice. Sometimes they have a point that is valuable to the task at hand, if we only recognize it, and thereby harness all of the energy and creativity of the group.
