OODAcast – Renowned Business Executive Scott McNealy, Co-Founder of Sun Microsystems
“Leaders should attenuate, not amplify.” – Scott McNealy
Scott McNealy was a co-founder and CEO of Sun Microsystems and has one of the longest-running tenures as the CEO of a Fortune 500 company in history. He was one of the few businessmen that played a critical role in the emergence of the Silicon Valley technology industry that exists today and is a highly sought after advisor for technology companies.
In 1999, Scott famously articulated that “You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.” and we revisit that quote in the context of today’s technology and social media environment. This OODAcast with OODA CEO Matt Devost and McNealy also covers:
