Sun's Senior VP of North American Sales Now HP’s Senior VP of North American Sales

departuresRandy Seidl’s bio is still live on the Sun Microsystems Web site, but the exec who once oversaw the company’s North American sales has new digs.

At Hewlett-Packard.

Quite a coup for HP (HPQ), which clearly hopes Seidl brings a bunch of Sun (JAVA) resellers and customers along with him. And quite a blow for Sun, which is seeing customer loyalty tested to the extreme thanks to the company’s planned takeover by Oracle (ORCL).

“Customers and partners alike, especially those grappling with the uncertainty of Sun’s future, need a technology partner that can eliminate barriers to business growth quickly,” Dave Donatelli, executive vice president of enterprise servers and networking at HP, said in a gloating statement. “We anticipate that Randy’s knowledge of the real business issues faced by today’s CIOs, coupled with his high level of energy, passion for technology and a strong network of channel relationships, will expand HP’s success.”

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
