Good interview: Asking "Why?" at Sun Laboratories: A Conversation with Director, Glenn Edens at Glen says:
    Product organizations are mostly staffed with engineers. And engineers are mostly nerds, who ask: "How are we going to get this done? How does this work? How can we make it better?" How, how, how.

    A research lab tends to consist of hippies, and hippies just ask why. Why, why, why. Why do I have to do it this way? Why should I do that? Why do I need to fill out this form? Why do I have to -- anything.

I think its true, the labs seems to be more hippie than nerd ... there certainly is more tie-dye and dead-heads here then any place else I've worked.


As a result of the publication, Sun's stock drops 7%. Investors bail on the hippies.
