It appears like Salesforce CEO and creator Marc Benioff never ever leaves the spotlight.

In between Salesforce’s Dreamforce mega-conference in San Francisco, his philanthropy, and his determination to take political stands, it appears like he’s constantly in the spotlight– even if, often, it’s due to the fact that he’s dealing with demonstrations over Salesforce’s deal with the United States Customs and Border Patrol.

It’s gone from an upstart Oracle competitor to a cloud computing leviathan in its own right.
