What is Java good at

Posted by daniel on May 9, 2008 at 6:56 AM PDT

I'm not the blogger police, but I don't understand these blogs that are just a bunch of pictures. Arun Gupta has posted ten collections of pictures without any context.

"Oh Daniel," you say, "you're so old you just don't appreciate that blogs can be many things."

Actually I do appreciate that. And I'm not opposed to pictures in blog postings.

Swarms for good not gossip

I don't understand Twitter.

Please feel free to use the comments below to call me a stupid old-fashioned luddite who wouldn't know the next big thing if it tried to add its second life avatar as my facebook buddy. Or you could use the comments below to imagine the Twitter log for your favorite Sun exec this week.

The Lightweight U I Toolkit

Posted by daniel on May 7, 2008 at 6:15 AM PDT

Jonathan Simon popped up in IM as I was leaving for JavaOne.

"Dude," he said --- it's his standard greeting, "check this out."

He directed me to Terrence Barr's post on the LWUIT (Lightweight UI Toolkit).

The Mobile and Embedded Ecosystem

The main reason that I am at JavaOne this year is that I produce the weekly Java Mobile and Embedded Podcast hosted by Roger Brinkley and Terrence Barr.

Preparing for JavaOne

I can't remember if my first JavaOne was the second or third but I've been to every one since and I'm still not considered Alumni.

I Can't Explain

We need to build more slack in

Chris is traveling today so you've got a substitute editor again . . .

Substitute

Posted by daniel on July 4, 2006 at 8:24 AM PDT

Last week Chris Adamson asked me if I would publish the site for him today while he travelled. How could I say no? It is totally my fault that we publish today. While most sites based in the U.S. have today off for the Independence Day holiday, we don't.

From the community corner

From the keynote to the show floor to the sessions it seems as if java.net is everywhere. Stop by the java.net booth and check out some of the presentations from our community and project leaders. If you are a member pick up your java.net sticker - if you aren't, we're happy to sign you up and then give you a sticker. It's nice to see what a large percent of attendees are community members.

JavaOne Day 0

JavaOne officially begins today. The java.net page will be devoted to coverage this week and we invite you to get involved. If you are a java.net blogger, set the "Primary Category" of your entry to JavaOne and we will be able to include you on the front page.
