Earlier this month, Mike Dillon, Executive VP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of Sun Microsystems, visited Sun’s Second Life campus for an internal conference and posted about it. It wasn’t terribly big news, particularly since it wasn’t a public event, but Dillon’s post seems to really get both the current reality (“the overall visual effect is still primitive and coarse and the UI is a barrier”) and the nearly limitless future (“one only has to imagine the impact when the bandwidth and rendering capabilities deliver the visual experience found in today’s gaming and movie releases.”) I hope we hear more from Dillon on this.
That all aside though, I’m actually flagging this post for my classmates from Berkeley’s class of 2003 (many of whom are now starting to look for in-house work, or at least, like me, weighing it as an option) because I got a kick out of the comment on this post, observing that Dillon has got the “coolest GC job on earth.” I agree… well, except maybe for Marty Roberts at Linden Lab. The point is that there’s definitely cool, interesting work outside of firms if you find a company that specializes in something you’re interested in.
