Ah, yesterday. Hair length is still a hot topicat least for Sun execs at the companys quarterly Network Computing event in San Francisco last week. The trademark ponytail of Suns executive VP of software, Jonathan Schwartz, stirred a mop-top mania among managers. Sure, Sun plans to revamp its UltraSPARC server lineup and is buying a server-savvy startup called Kealia, but an obsession with the ponytail seemed to pop up here, there and everywhere at a commentary session with company honchos.
The Furball fidgeted in his collarless suit and pointy-toed boots as Clark Masters, Suns executive VP of enterprise system products, started the magilla by claiming that to be in software, you must be cool, like Schwartz with his ponytail. Masters conceded that he was an old fuddy-duddy but was quite comfortable with his corporate cut. Schwartz chuckled amid the follicle folderol, but His Hirsuteness almost coughed up a hairball when Neil Knox, Suns executive VP of volume systems, punctuated the patter by pointing out that his balding pate may not be cool but would eventually save him money on hair-care fees. Wishing they had just let it be with the barbershop banter, the Hairball was happy to get back home.
