Hot bowl of acronym soup

Posted by horwat on June 12, 2003 at 5:46 PM PDT

James asked me which talk I was headed to next and I handed him a nice hot
bowl of acronym soup. I happily replied "JSF SVG BOF" (ok you got
me, it was a Session and I misspoke). The look of confusion on his face was
priceless and I realized that he had no idea what I was talking about.

Cool New Features in JSP 2.0

Posted by horwat on June 12, 2003 at 3:52 PM PDT

Earlier this week I was able to attend the JSP 2.0 session and learn about
its cool new features. There are so many changes that it certainly warrants
the major version number upgrade.

Numerology and the new Java logo

The new Java logo was one of the new big announcements at the keynote this morning for those that are less observant and didn't notice the new design all around Moscone. I like the new clean design. It will certainly scale better for small devices as well as look better on different colored backgrounds.

Writing demos can be a great deal of fun. It's an opportunity to be creative with the technology and simply let your imagination go wild. I also like be able to experiment and poke around with technologies that I wouldn't normally get a chance to.
