Inquirer: Diane Greene among the top 5 women in Tech, ever!

Gosh, that is one such an honor. Diane is my hero as well. Her poise and simplicity while steering a beast of a machine called VMware, (can we stop calling VMware an 800 pound gorilla folks?), is a great sign of leadership.

5 Anita Borg, born 1949, made a major contribution to the role of women in modern computing. After a career in computing, including a long stint at Digital, Borg founded the Institute for Women and Technology.

4 Kim Polese. Once a rising star at Sun, Polese made her name in the dot-com era when she set up Marimba, an early proponent of internet push software. She now runs SpikeSource, a company that certifies stacks of open-source programs.

3 Diane Greene might well be the most important woman in IT today. As founder and CEO of VMware she runs what is possibly the biggest business technology success story of the decade so far. The MIT graduate previously worked at firms including Sybase, SGI and Tandem. As a child, she made cash in a more humble way, fishing for crabs in Maryland and selling them for a few dollars each.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
