Hal Stern becomes Sun's software CTO

Hal Stern has become the new chief technology officer for Sun Microsystems' software group, he announced on his blog last week. In the job, he'll work on governance, architectural decisions, partnerships and running Sun's security program office, he said.

"There are several models for what CTOs do; some are more like CIOs and some are the displaced technical founders of startups," Stern wrote. "I'm more in the middle as a technology critic."
