Sun is a Fast 50

This month's issue of Fast Company has their 7th annual list of the "The World's 50 Most Innovative Companies".

Sun Microsystems being on this list is great for two reasons... #1 is that they deserve it and #2 is that I benefit because I am working with Sun to develop their Web Industry Practice!

Here is Fast Company's description:

Datacenters account for some three percent of total world energy use, and Sun has taken that as a challenge. Last year its mad-scientist approach to energy efficiency -- and $2 billion R&D budget -- rippled across the industry as the company released the world's most efficient processor, the UltraSPARC T2; Project Blackbox, the first virtualized datacenter; and a new, super-green Silicon Valley datacenter that increases computer power by 456% while cutting energy costs by more than 60%. With four straight profitable quarters for the first time since 2001 and 6% growth, the forecast is sunny.
