Thank God for "failure"
So, the funniest thing about the .com bubble was that people actually believed that if they concentrated really really hard, that they could think up the "next big thing". While venture capitalists learned the hard way, most modern marketing departments are still disillusioned. Sorry lads, it just doesn't work that way.
Java One proves technology can be funny.
The Scott McNealy keynote is always a highlight of Java One. This year, at Java One 2003, it was Salesforce.com that stole the show, and a lot of laughs.
So, we've had over 1,000 people sign up to java.net on the first day it went live. That rocks!
I just noticed 44 new projects that just got created! Some cool stuff. I'll need to highlight a few. Keep them coming!!
Tired, but happy.
Obviously, every large project take a lot of time and effort and building java.net was no different. We spent months incubating the idea into reality and like all projects had our share of late nights and last minute twists and curves. It all finally culminated, after some last minute flurries, with a big bang of a launch
So, here we are, extremely tired at 6:30am on the first day of Java One. The site is live and in ending one journey we begin another.
