On-line discussion on Larry Ellison

With the author of the book "SOFTWAR: An Intimate Portrait of Larry Ellison and Oracle"

Got this mail from Ms. Cynthia Webb of The Washington Post. I’m in India now and can’t participate. In any case, I’ve not read this book and the title smacks of sensationalism that there is little chance that I will read it.

Summary: On 02/26/2004, 12 EST, participate in the on-line discussion with Matthew Symonds.

The original e-mail is below.


I am a technology reporter with I noticed your blog on Oracle.

I will be hosting an online interview tomorrow (2-26) at 12 ET US with Matthew Symonds, author of the recently released book "SOFTWAR: An Intimate Portrait of Larry Ellison and Oracle." Symonds will field questions about business software company Oracle Corp. and its leader and co-founder. In researching his book, Symonds had access to Ellison, offering readers an up-close view of the decisions and personality of one of tech’s brashest figures. The Oracle chief provided his own commentary of Symonds’s book in published footnotes, offering readers a glimpse of Ellison’s thoughts and strategy.

Readers can submit questions for the chat here in advance of or during the chat, which starts at 12 ET on Feb. 26.

Feel free to participate or pass this along in the blogoshpere.

Many thanks!
Cindy Webb, technology reporter

  1. Sensationalism? I wouldn't say that. The title smacks of a bad pun if you ask me ;)
