John Chambers Essay in Forbes: “Guts and Glory”
I would be remiss if I didn’t bring the following essay by our CEO, John Chambers, to your attention. In a Forbes magazine special report on “Networks,” he talks about the future of technology and leads his essay with: “The last 15 years have brought us advances in communications technology far surpassing those made in the previous 5,000–making the next 15 an era that will be limited only by our imagination and our courage to execute.” Full article here. I can only surmise that Forbes entitled it “Guts and Glory” because Cisco makes the Guts of the network which enables the Glory or Telepresence, blogging, video sharing, communities, voice, video, data, mobility, etc. I found it interesting to read his thoughts on where he thinks the future of technology is going and thought you might too.Others who contributed to this Forbes special section include: – Fred Smith of FedEx– John Doerr and Bill Joy of Kleiner Perkins– Howard Dean of the DNC– Rupert Murdoch of NewsCorpand 20-some other essays on Networks and their impact on medicine, charity, video and more.Really interesting special report and I encourage you to check it out.
