Thank You, Military Service Members!

May 23, 2011 at 9:00 am PST

With the United States Memorial Day approaching, the Cisco Veteran’s Employee Resource Group (VETS ERG) is preparing care packages to send to deployed military service members.

As part of that drive, we assembled a video of Cisco employees saying “Thank you!” to all of our deployed troops.  A DVD of the video is being included in the care packages, along with various other “we really appreciate all that you do for us” goodies.

Please join Cisco in thanking all our military service members for their service.

A Thanksgiving Blog

It’s the week of Thanksgiving, and as such it seemed a good time to pause, take a breath, look around, and say thanks. So, in no particular order:

Thank you to my engineering and technology co-workers, both here at Cisco and everywhere else, for being so adept in evolving and adapting in this great era of innovation.

Think about the pace of change in our lifetimes, attributable to very smart people, focused on innovating: We’ve gone to the moon, explored Mars and even built a space station. We’ve decoded the human genome in this same period of time. We’ve helped to create not just the Internet, but also the capability to “put the Internet in your pocket” - to make that endless stream of information available to people wherever there’s an IP connection.

Thanks, too, to our service provider customers, for challenging us to dig deep and do our best work to help create this next great era of consumer choice and innovation - to facilitate that shift to IP-based entertainment and communications experiences. They’ve challenged us to not just focus on innovation that benefit consumers but consider the viability of the business models in support of entire media ecosystems.   Real market shifts occur when new technology delivers compelling consumer value while sustaining a tangible economic model. I’m very grateful that we’re a part of making it happen with you.
