Friday's Friends Report, Jun 2

Memorial Day 2006
I don’t live in the United States, and the US military isn’t “my” military, but I too want to say “thank you” to those that have served, and especially those that have served and have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

My friends have said thanks too:

Down here in New Zealand we have a “memorial day” on April 25 for our soliders, and we call it ANZAC Day.

  • Roderick Deane … Chairman and ex-CEO of Telecom New Zealand, is stepping down at the end of June. There’s a few changes going on down here in New Zealand related to our telecoms environment, and he has decided to call it a day. I first met Dr Deane in 1994 at TUANZ, and in the next couple of years while working at Telecom, had the opportunity to present to him and his senior management team a number of times. I’ve never forgotten one of his statements: “I have 5-6 things to do each year” … I didn’t “get” what he was referring to then as a 25-year old, but I do now. All the best for this next stage of your life Dr Deane! ComputerWorld
