Bob Horn in the Participation Age

Bob Horn is the Director of US Sales for the newly formed Sun Microsystems Software Practice, which spans the entire Sun software stack. I blogged about Bob once before, when, in his role as Director of US Identity Software Sales, he encouraged me to resume my blog after a month-long drought. We’re now putting the finishing touches on a week of sales training in Orlando, FL. When I talked to Bob earlier today, he remarked, “Mark, you’ve got to put me in your blog!”

So, in deference to Bob and his newly elevated status, here he is, in living color! Well, here he is in the limited color and resolution my Treo camera offers!

But on a serious note – why would a successful sales leader like Bob keep commenting on my blog? Why would he want his mug featured here?

I think it is because both Bob and I are in the business of enabling the Participation Age. We sell and implement products that are essential to the infrastructure that enables people to publish blogs, to build communities, to participate in interactive commerce. We help people to be not only information consumers but publishers to this environment we call cyberspace. Bob’s desire to grace this blog is not vanity, but pragmatic recognition that this type of participatory communication is what puts bread on our tables every day.

Thanks, Bob, for the insight.
