Technology Review: Emerging Technologies and their Impact

Technology Review: Emerging Technologies and their Impact: "Known outside the company for his technical acumen -- as well as a ponytail and his outspoken blog (he was one of the first high-level technology executives to start a public blog, in June 2004) -- Schwartz wasted little time laying out his vision for Sun's future on April 24 during a conference call where he was introduced as the new CEO.
Schwartz expressed enthusiasm for a few specific technologies: open-source operating systems for large corporate computing systems, 'grid' or 'utility' computing, and the idea of selling computing time and power by the CPU-hour over the Internet. But he failed to bring up two keys areas in Sun's past: semiconductors and microprocessor architecture."
