We taped the 35th episode of The GigaOM Show this past week. I interviewed Jonathan Schwartz, CEO of Sun Microsystems where we discussed different topics including the importance of fundamental research, how Sun is changing and why he bought MySQL.
With this episode, we are going on a brief hiatus. While The GigaOM team – Liz, Katie & Chris – along with Joyce Kim had been doing a great job in keeping the show going, [thanks guys] to ask them to continue was above and beyond their call of duty. Being the show host, I felt I needed to return to the show to keep its fidelity but even taping a single episode proved to be quite taxing.
My doctors have urged me
to now not to pursue activities that can raise stress and my blood pressure, and taping a show every week falls in that category. So for now we are taking a little break and will return sometime later this summer with a new look, once the doctors give me the thumbs up. Meanwhile, enjoy the episode and check out archives of the previous episodes.
