Brian (bex) Exelbierd
Senior Principal Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Platforms Business Unit, Red Hat
My career path springs forth from the moment I got my first PC. I grew to love programming and solving problems. Computers were around, because they usually(!) made that easier. I studied education with the goal of teaching computer science to share this idea with everyone.
I still believe in teaching and incorporate it into my work. Teaching requires you to understand goals and to find solutions that are viable and available. It requires you to listen and to ask the right questions to figure out what the real need is. This needs to happen without getting distracted by the symptoms or the self-prescribed solutions. Teaching requires planning to ensure the learner stays on a path to success without getting lost in the details or locked into wrong destination. Like in Open Source, teachers have to lead with motivation, not positional authority, to be effective.

Early in 1996; I was giving a talk to some folks at the Lotus office in Manchester, about collaboration software. I pointed to my presentation slide, said something, then a little voice in my head said, "you said the same thing a year ago." There was a brief dialogue, in my head, like bullet time in the film, "The Matrix" after which I resolved to do something different.
From here I moved into marketing. I loved the mix of technical and creative, and the freedom and trust to build something from scratch. Lotus became IBM, I journeyed from the UK to Europe to do E-Mail and Messaging, then globally to do Knowledge Management.
A tour of the software industry followed, through Dot Com's to Dot Gones, through self-employment, open source software (SuSE Linux at Novell), and then to Sun Microsystems.
At Sun an opportunity to get involved arose, and before too long CSR and Sustainability were things I led. Sun became Oracle, and I became self-employed.
Product sustainability, Lifecycle Assessment Software, with brilliant, crazy, lovely Germans followed at thinkstep, and then I led product management and marketing with the brilliant Oasis HUB, making environmental data available to catastrophe modellers and the disaster risk response (DRR) community.
