Submission + - Cisco to Buy Webex

Dekortage writes: As the latest in a series of recent acquisitions, Cisco has agreed to buy Webex for US$3.2 billion. Cisco, known more for its networking gear, will be relying on Webex's popular online conferencing/collaboration service to expand into online business services. In typical marketing-speak, Cisco's Chief Development Officer says in the official press release that "The combination of Cisco and WebEx will deliver compelling solutions accelerating this next wave of business communications." For an extra ten points, can anyone name the flamboyant homosexual who appeared in Webex's early advertising?
