Sun’s CEO Resigns via Twitter

Here’s the first of (I’m sure) many more to come. Yesterday, Sun Microsystem’s Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Schwartz, resigned his position via Twitter. Mr. Shwartz’s resignation comes shortly after the purchase of Sun by Oracle.

Evidently, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is quite pleased with the results.

Oracle’s chief executive, Larry Ellison, is not especially fond of Mr. Schwartz. In an interview last week, Mr. Ellison said he fully expected Mr. Schwartz to resign rather than play a role in the combined company.

Well it seems that what Larry wants, Larry gets.

I do think, however, that the haiku at the end was a nice touch.
