Come and visit Ras Al Khaimah, Larry Ellison!

Here’s an interesting article in the New York Times about the America’s Cup being run out of Ras Al Khaimah.

My soon-to-be new boss, yacht owner Larry Ellison, is worried about the security aspects, what with Iran being rather near and RAK’s general location in the Middle East.

I would say that Mr Ellison’s fears are unfounded. He and his crew will be perfectly safe, if not safer than they might be in Europe, the US or elsewhere – after all, few of his current Sun and Oracle employees located here would live in this part of the world if it was truly dangerous. RAK, in particular, is a calm place, with a rather less hectic approach to life than some of its neighbouring emirates.

Mr Ellison has a standing invitation to pop up the road to Dubai to visit me and Mrs Saul, where I will do my best to suck up shamelessly to my new boss of bosses, flaunting my long involvement with the concept of the Network Computer, a subject that his been close to his heart for years. And to mine.

So, come on over Mr Larry (as you would be known). I guarantee you’ll have a great time. After all, If Paris can make it over, anyone can.
