Update: John Thompson Takes the Mic Afterall

Posted by: Sarah Lacy on January 26, 2006

I just got a call from someone at RSA, who read my posting on Symantec’s revolving door. Turns out, Symantec CEO John Thompson will be doing that keynote on Feb. 15 after all. It’ll be the one day of the conference I’ll actually be looking forward to the long, traffic filled drive down 101 to San Jose. For one thing, I think Thompson is one of the most clever, entertaining and effective keynoters in the software landscape. And I’m dying to hear his spin on the many challenges facing the company right now. I’ll be sure to write it up, in either an online story or on Tech Beat.
