Ok… you don’t typically give yourself a nickname do you? You will probably never wake up one day and say… “from now on I’m ‘Uncle ZEN’” would you? No. Well, it turns out that I’ve been given a ‘ZEN’ related nickname on two occasions, once by a customer and once by representatives from a major hardware vendor. These two nicknames were OK in my books, but the one that appears to be sticking the most within the halls of Novell is “Hollywood” – mainly because some feel that during off hours I’m a Banana Republic poster child (plus my shades rock dudes).
So… no ZEN Evangelist, no Supreme Evangelist, and no Dr. ZEN. I have been branded Hollywood (with a passion for ZENworks)… forever… and I’m OK with that.
