A nice story about meeting retiring CEO Scott McNealy for the first time in 1992 or '93. Followed by a riff on Sun's mantra, "The network is the computer." Go Jonathan! Hope you can keep it up.

Darn, it doesn't look like it so far. Following yesterday's news that Sun's founding CEO, Scott McNealy, is stepping down - to be replaced by COO Jonathan Schwartz - I skipped over to Jonathan's blog at blogs.sun.com/jonathan.

I fact, Jonathan links back to a blog post he made on June 16, 2005

Economist_newmedia_survey_cover Looks like the first two sections of The Economist’s New Media survey (April 22, 2006 issue of the print magazine) is accessible online, at least for now. I highly recommend it. It’s got some nice tidbits and turns of phrase related to blogging, wikis, podcasting, interactive journalism and the definition of a media company.

I interviewed Phil Gomes (Senior Counsel for Edelman) a few weeks back about "self-regulation" of the blogosphere. Robert Scoble and DL Byron stopped by to say hi while Phil and I were chatting. You can hear all their voices on the podcast.

You are invited to dial into a free teleconference on WOM Ethics ("A Practical Guide to Doing it Right"). Call 512-225-3050 and enter passcode 772541#.

WOMMA's teleconferences are usually paid events so this sounds kinda interesting. It coincides with WOMMA's announcement that DuPont has adopted WOMMA's code of ethics for word-of-mouth marketing.

It's an interesting debate -- there's often a gray area -- and I'll be interested to hear how the WOMMA folks frame it up.
