First, Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I, of course, forgot to don a green shirt…or socks…or anything, so even though I have a bit of Irish in me I’m not “showing the colors,” so to speak. I hope this acknowledgement by blog will suffice.This week is a good week for green generally. Our CEO John Chambers is talking virtually through TelePresence to former U.S. Vice President (and Nobel Laureate and Oscar winner) Al Gore on Wednesday about on climate change and technology innovation on Wednesday, March 19 at 11AM ET (8AM PT). Please join the conversation by registering for this webcast at www.cisco.com/offer/ecopanel.And, to turn personal, I’m a bit green with envy over the teams that were included in the NCAA basketball tournament*. My school, Wake Forest, was not chosen to participate…and, even though we had a winning record and I thought, surely, we’d go to the NIT tournament, we were not chosen for that post-season tourney either…which leaves me a little green in the gills, as they say. So, maybe I am wearing a bit of green today.*I’m going to have to go with my home-state North Carolina Tar Heels to win it all this year.
