My Ex Boss, the Linux Hero

Tony Maro, the CIO of Evrichart (and also my boss from my old job prior to NASA) was interviewed by ZDNet! Tony is an awesome, knowledgeable and forward-thinking guy. He’s way ahead of his time in terms of CIO leadership and the IT industry. He makes this look easy and roots his decisions in common sense, not marketingcrap. It’s served him and Evrichart well. Incidentally, we also interviewed Tony on NO CARRIER some time ago.

Scaling Guidance

<dd class="wp-caption-dd zemanta-img-attribution" style="font-size: 0.8em;"> Image via <a href="">CrunchBase</a> </dd> </dl> At WWDC2009, I stood up in a session on Snow Leopardserver and lightly rattled Apple‘s cage about its poor scaling guidance for the product. They were spending a great deal of time talking about the benefits of Wiki Server2, but there was little to take away from the session on what to tell any prospective customers regarding cost.
