Speaker: Scott Mattoon
Chief Architect Western U.S. Sales for Sun
Board of Directors Architecture for Humanity
Last month, Scott Mattoon shared his thoughts on the Role of Open Source Technology and Sustainability in San Francisco. He did a great job connecting the dots between open source technology and (very) current social changes that are making a huge impact on the world. We asked him to join us again in Silicon Valley for July, and he said yes!
Scott serves on the Board of Directors of Architecture for Humanity and works for Sun Microsystems as Chief Architect for Western U.S. Sales. He is an active advocate for open source and sustainable business. Scott is technical liaison for Sun to the TED community and serves as lead systems architect for Sun's support of TED prize winners Cameron Sinclair, Neil Turok and Bill Clinton. A student of sustainability, Scott stitches ecological impact awareness, energy analysis, and long term thinking into everything he does. In addition to his time at Sun, Scott's career has spanned several leadership positions with companies helping to shape business and society on the Internet including 4charity.com, Live365.com, Cybersource, and NeXT. A glimpse of his sensibilities relating to open source and sustainable business are revealed on his downstream blog.
EcoTuesday is a forum for sustainable business leaders to come together to network, collaborate, and engage with one another in a structured environment. Each month EcoTuesday features opportunities for sustainable business leaders to network and learn about current issues from an innovative speaker and from one another. During the introduction circle, all participants share one sentence about their business and a passion or interest around sustainability, which provides participants an opportunity to learn about each other in order to focus their networking efforts for the rest of the evening.
