Scott McNealy sinks further into irrelevance Poor Scott McNealy. The Sun Microsystems ex-CEO and current chairman is the hungry ghost of Silicon Valley, showing up at the odd event and rattling his chains sadly. This time it's tomorrow night's Stirr mixer , guest hosted by CNET's Rafe Needleman. (Incidentally, Needleman himself is pimping his new CNET blog Webware , which at 6 contributors, needs about 7 fewer.) McNealy is there to "talk and take audience questions about entrepreneurship." Sun is pitching in a couple servers for door prizes. A Greek chorus will handle the wailing, gnashing of teeth, and rending of garments to accompany McNealy's oration.
