Sun Microsystem's CEO, Jonathan Schwartz, has a blog. Now, I don't care a heck of a lot about what's going on at Sun, but I am enjoying hearing about life from Jonathan's POV. Largely he's using the blog to address issues that are facing Sun these days, like how they are going to monetize Java, or how to compete with "Free" software.

I'm once again working for a company that 1) is not in the I.T. market itself, 2) has real ideas that are changing the way our clients do business (for the better, I might add) and 3) must compete in the marketplace; a company where what I do has a tangible, immediate effect on the success or failure of our clients. Sounds normal enough, I suppose, but it makes me enjoy opportunities to spend time chatting with our CEO (in a company of 30 people I can still do that fairly often), making sure that I know where we're headed and how we're going to meet the challenges we face on the way there.

Reading Jonathan's and Mark's blogs are kinda like that.
