The JavaOne team finally took to heart the attendee feedback for "more community involvement" in content selection. After whipping up a "friendly and collaborative" legal agreement, we enlisted the expertise of these folks to review, comment and selection of technical session and birds-of-a-feather.

We accepted 145 sessions (so far.) Additionally, 35 sessions were selected as alternates. I ended my week by sending out email notifications to those speakers, telling them the good news and setting in motion a...

It isn't holiday excitement that I am experiencing right now, but the thrill of having nearly 1400 papers to review for the 2006 JavaOne Conference. You've heard of the "hockey stick" effect - the steep upturn in revenue or sales as a fiscal period nears a close? I've never witnessed anything quite like this.
