Here was the line up for the Jan 18 Churchill Club's Silicon Valley's New Century Leaders:

Charles Phillips, Jr., President, Oracle
Dan Rosensweig, COO, Yahoo!
Jonathan Schwartz, President and COO, Sun Microsystems.

Sun Microsystems' Jonathan Schwartz: Valley's new century leader

John Markoff, The New York Times

Missed it. Because I'm pretty sure they missed it. All three are solid executives and they'd certainly make the top 100, but Silicon Valley's new leaders? Really? Are you sure? Could you double check?

John, please tell me you had no control over the picks, please. It was probably Tony, right? It's just so 1990s it has to be Tony, his fingerprints are all over it.

I like the Churchill Club, it has interesting events much of the time. My most recent visit was a lot of fun, here it is if you missed it:
