To make true advances in any industry or field requires forward thinking—as well as industry insight and experience. It can't be done just by packaging a bag of piece parts and putting a new label on it. But forward thinkers are putting smarter, more powerful technology to uses that were once unimaginable -- either in scale or in progress.
I am pleased that IBM has honored me with recognition as a "forward thinker" on the corporate-wide [IBM Smarter Planet for Smarter IT systems and Infrastructure]. This is quite an honor, being one of the "faces" of IBM's Smarter Planet campaign. I am joined by my esteemed colleagues: [Brian Sanders], [Steve Will], [Willie Favero], and [Kathleen Holm].
Ironically, I didn't even know I made the final cut until I got three, yes three, separate requests for interviews about it. I already reached the "million hits" milestone. Other people track these things for me, so it will be interesting how much additional traffic my latest [15 minutes of fame] will generate.
