This must be a first. Sun Microsystems CEO Jonathan Schwartz has bid farewell to his company by posting a haiku on Twitter. He tweets:
Today's my last day at Sun. I'll miss it. Seems only fitting to end on a #haiku. Financial crisis/Stalled too many customers/CEO no more
This tactic, in many ways, isn't surprising considering Schwartz's longstanding advocacy for using social media over more closed channels of communications. He also posted a farewell blog on January 27. Last year Oracle moved to buy a struggling Sun, in a deal that was completed last month.
