So I'll continue to call out those who deserve it, and to mock those in need of a good mocking. I've had the good fortune to work with brilliant people who are constantly getting ESG involved in fascinating endeavors. Some of those endeavors have got me really jazzed, and those are the areas where I'm trying to make myself smarter. As soon as I succeed, I'll be sure to let you know. The world of storage is a world I love, as boring and geeky as that sounds. I'll never lose the passion, but I find that smarter people with a razor-sharp focus like Tony's will bring more to the party for everyone.
Of course, if he screws up this column I may have to shoot him, which would be bad, but I feel it's my duty. Tony, meet the people; people, say "Hi" to Tony. Now, go talk amongst yourselves. Cheers.
