Zimbra co-founder Satish Dharmaraj is on his way out of Yahoo and will be
replaced by Zimbra exec Jim Morrisroe in March. Yahoo bought the AJAX-based
open source/commercial e-mail and calendaring groupware for $350 million in
September of 2007 and has been trying to enliven Yahoo Mail with some Zimbra
features. Ditto the Yahoo Calendar. Morrisroe will report to Scott Dietzen,
the erstwhile president of Zimbra who was named senior vice-president of
communications products at Yahoo last year.

music in the park; or when you play a CD in your car. These experiences can
be enriched by entertainment metadata.
This white paper examines how Macrovision delivers visually rich and
descriptive entertainment metadata from TV Guide and AMG to drive consumer
engagement, purchasing, and ... (more)

Enterprise Servive Bus (ESB) project (http://mule.mulesource.org) about the
usefulness of this technology and its recent success.
EOSM: What is Mule, and what led you to create it?
