AMD Chairman And CEO Hector Ruiz Challenges IT Industry To Help Solve The World’s Most Pressing Problems

--Ruiz urges technology leaders to address key needs in healthcare, energy conservation and digital connectivity--

AUSTIN, TX -- May 3, 2006 --At the 15th World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) today, AMD (NYSE: AMD) Chairman and CEO Hector Ruiz delivered the opening day keynote address, urging the IT industry to become a catalyst for solving the world’s most important issues.

“It is incumbent upon the IT leaders of the world to help effect positive change in our global community,” said Ruiz. “By using proven and sound business principles to drive social and economic development in high-growth markets, our industry can be socially responsible and simultaneously profitable. We can do well financially by doing good.”

In his address, Ruiz outlined three areas in which the power of technology could be used more fully: healthcare, energy conservation and digital inclusion.

Ruiz discussed how AMD, a long-time technology sponsor of Lance Armstrong and the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team, is collaborating with the Lance Armstrong Foundation to harness the power of technology to improve the quality of life for people affected by cancer.

Addressing the issue of “global warming in the enterprise,” Ruiz called upon technology leaders to participate in the recently announced “The Green Grid.org” – an industry consortium whose goal is to lower power consumption in the world’s datacenters.

Technology’s greatest potential lies in its ability to foster education and knowledge around the world, which will ultimately enable the world to close widening digital and socioeconomic divides, Ruiz continued. Ruiz discussed the impact and progress of AMD’s 50x15 initiative, a goal to enable 50% of the world’s population with affordable Internet access by the year 2015. Millions of people around the globe have connected to the Internet since the initiative was launched in 2004.

The technology industry does not have to sacrifice profitability by living up to its obligations to the world, Ruiz asserted. With the right leaders employing the right business models, the IT industry can remain lucrative while changing the world.

Sorry, I'm a newbie here; what's this biz of max pain in '99? We're in 2006, I'm sure, unless I had too much to drink... ;-)

Yes, I realized that after about 1/2 hour; I'd heard that history is bound to repeat itself, but it seemed rather too repetitious. :-) I've still no idea how I ended up browsing 1999 posts; must have accidentally clicked on some wrong button... Thanks.

This seems like a nice place to hang out free from badly implemented and over zealous moderation ;-).

Well, I will love the 30 posts a day limit, even 20 or 25, perhaps ignored around EPS. Actually it would be great if SI would have a feature to support a limit on moderated threads, with the moderator just adjusting the limit.

I assume you were kicked off for some "personal attack" or something. That kind of moderation is a bit overdone IMO.

This was a great thread when Paul Engel would fill the regular AMD thread with dozens of snide comments and every press releases having anything to do with Intel, every day of the week.

Have a great day, my new job is a bit too intense for me to follow the thread in the evening.

Limits suck. What a moderator needs on SI is what exists on Ihub, the ability to remove posts. Yes I was suspended for this very innocuous and truthful comment agreeing with another poster about Doug. Once the suspension is over I don't think I care to return there while that logically challenged individual is running the show as I really am done with his BS.

1. Come on now, with a post limit, Doug will be off the thread more than he is on. If so, why not monitor the thread and if he is off, post. If not, refrain.
2. I think AMD will have monay postivie surprises over the next 6 months, the biggest indicator being the insider buying. Doug will just go away when his point of view becomes untenable, and he loses enough money.

EDIT - "monay" ppsitive surpises was a freudian slip, I suppose
