Please take a look at my latest "Meet the Engineer" Q&A. Tom's job is to facilitate the growth of the OpenJDK community in an effort to promote Java technology ubiquity, compatibility, adoption, and innovation.
I'd be curious what you think of this java.sun.com interview I did with Ray Gans
titled "Open Source -- Then and Now: A Conversation With Ray Gans of the OpenJDK Community Program".
Ray's been about as close to Sun's open

Would love it if you'd check out
YouTube where, with a SONIA demo
in the background at JavaOne 2007, yours truly talks with David Mercier, an engineering student at
Ecole de Technologie SupÃ©rieure (ETS) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Looking back on JavaOne 2007
The 2007 JavaOne Conference is over. As always itâ€™s a bit
of a blur, but buried within the blur are nuggets of knowledge, or at

my focus was mostly on open source this time around thatâ€™s where
I learned some things.
Just a few more days before the 2007 JavaOne commences and Iâ€™m definitely feeling a mix of anxiety (writing deadlines) and excitement (the event itself). This is the eighth JavaOne Iâ€™ve covered -- does that make me a veteran? -- and itâ€™s intriguing to reflect on how everythingâ€™s changed.
Brian Harry, a.k.a. the "bug guy," talks at length about bugs in a java.sun.com article by yours truly, Getting the Bugs Out: A Conversation With Bug Fixer Brian Harry.
An interview, Meet Peter von der AhÃ©, Tech Lead for Javac at Sun Microsystems, I did with Peter, Sun's tech lead for javac, discusses the Kitchen Sink Language, the Java Compiler AP
A new interview I did with Sun technology evangelist Brian Goetz,
"Writing Better Code:
A Conversation With Sun Microsystems Technology Evangelist Brian Goetz"
explores several areas of his considerable expertise.
Here's a new java.sun.com
Managing Applications With Java SE 6: A Conversation With
that I did with Sun Distinguished engineer Vasanthan Dasan, chief technologist for the
Services Product Unit.
A new java.sun.com article,
"FareCompare Ready to Soar
With Migration to Java SE 6," by yours truly, imho is
interesting in a couple of ways.
