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.
