bq. I personally have a different opinion of Mr. Chambers that many in the tech sector. If you wonder why, do a Google search on his role at Wang back in the day. Better still, ask a former Wang employee (they are many, but I am not one) about Chamber’s role back then. But that aside, this news about Cisco (and you should read ths story if you’re involved in the tech sector, coupled with Intel’s reorganization announcement (merging the wireless unit into the networking group) is a pretty strong indication that “things are happening.” After two years of no growth, no expansion, hanging-by-the-fingernails survival for many in the tech sector, activity like this really is good news.
