Last week I found myself at a customer site, meeting Mark Dixon for the first time. (This continues the long tradition of Sun people meeting other Sun people at non-Sun locations — we’re a highly distributed crew.) I was delighted about the prospect, since I’d been following him through Planet Identity for a long time. Mark is incredibly knowledgeable about identity issues and our products, and charming to boot. I loved hearing about the many exploits of his many talented children — he mentioned that one of his sons had just become class president and I immediately thought of his great picture of a different son…on a Mongolian camel.
In this post Mark kindly calls me “Ms. Interoperability” — nice pun! I first scanned it as “MS Interoperability”, which makes sense too.
Pleased to meet you too, Mr. Dixon!
Thanks for the thoughtful post. I’ve really enjoyed reading about your reports from IIW.
