“The future is here. It’s just not evenly distributed yet.”

SAN JOSE, CA – This is a very interesting quote from science fiction writer William Gibson which I heard on KQED’s California Report this morning as they were doing a profile on the California Institiute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Cal IT2) at the University of California at San Diego. I encourage you to check out their site. It is definitely a nice feather in the hat of American innovation and the university system in California and the U.S.They are doing very cool, APPLICABLE technology projects there and it, of course, made me think of what we’re doing here at Cisco. Some we can talk about and, of course, some not so much.Some cool technology that we are currently showing internally is something I think is going to have a big impact. Can’t talk about it now, but I’ll leave you with this question: Will it revolutionize business travel? We will see, but as Mr. Gibson says, the future is here.So, based on this, here’s my new Cisco tagline co-opted from many sources: “Cisco: The Future of Telecommunications. Now.” I haven’t run that by marketing…and I haven’t quit my day job…but, that’s just out and out gold… : )
