The Java Fundamentals chat within Second Life was a Huge success! We had about 25 attendees, and everyone was enthusiastic with their questions. We had a great discussion. In case you missed it, I've posted it below with minor editing. Additionally, at the end is the information from the Note card that the attendees received.

Handwriting Recognition with Java Technology

Picking up the pace!

The pace has really picked up here at JavaOne. Streams of people going and coming from the rooms, the Pavillion is milling with crowds, but overall everything seems to be running smoothly.

Yesterday was interesting, starting off with the General Session, which hosted a live band, and lots of announcements.

Java University

The Java University course Exploring the Struts Framework and How it Supports Web Component Development was really outstanding. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, as this area of JavaOne was new to me. I was pleasantly surprised.

Opening day at JavaOne!
