JavaOne

Just thought I'd post this actual picture (taken by my pal Duncan Davidson) of the biggest butterfly in the world. If you see one of these babies flittering around JavaOne, you'd better get out your .NET.

Just looking at some of the off-branded tschatskes from JavaOne. Some of them are pretty clever and show a distinct sense of humor. For instance: Opens up to reveal... Gosh I hope nobody gets fired over this one. Shows a human side to Sun Marketing...:-) Here are a couple of other fun posts on the same topic...I was amused to see a blog on the same topic by David Delabassee's on blogs.sun....

I must confess that the tendency for vendors to consider their conference sponsorship a down-payment on holding an audience hostage has finally taken its toll. I just had to get away... Picture taken by Duncan Davidson and hosted here Lucky for me, my friends at O'Reilly (yes, I know I'm a groupie) are holding the Where 2.0 conference today and tomorrow, just a few blocks away from JavaOne. Yes...

Sitting in Scott McNealy's keynote next to two Sun lawyers, Cliff Allen and Matt Marquis. Usually you don't get to see lawyers at JavaOne, but today is special for Cliff and Matt, because they worked like dogs for the SeeBeyond acquisition, which was announced today. Makes me think about how many people are behind each minute at a big event like this. Cliff and Matt's moment of fame lasted...

As I was leaving Sun a few months ago, I said there were still lots of good Sun people who were working to promote more open source. Today's release of J2EE reference implementation under CDDL is a tribute to the ongoing persistence of J2EE Director of Engineering, Jim Driscoll. A couple of weeks ago I got a call in Bangkok from Jim, who was calling (me as OSI representative) to talk about Sun'...

Okay, already there have been some really funny moments in Jonathan's keynote. In a minute I'll write up the F.O.S.S. bit. But first I must give a nod to the IBM lovefest. Jonathan just played a video where an IBM VP said how much IBM loves Java, even after 10 years. And in conclusion Jonathan said, "So, if you see an IBMer around JavaONE, go ahead and give them a hug"...and then (here's the...

Now understand, 2 years ago I wrote a blog about sitting in the front row from the first JavaONE that had blogs (thanks to the launch of java.net :-) ). This year however I'm just one of the regular folks, albiet an Alumni (thanks, Alvina!). So, of course ran into other alum-chums of mine in the morning keynote line...Ken Arnold and Emily Suter. Lookie, there's James! There's Simon Phipps......

This is a long blog (apologies, etc.) It turns out to be very difficult to blog at JavaOne. For me the main barrier is the lack of easy wireless acess in the General Session room, which I would like to see fixed for next year (I'm probably not alone). Wonder if its even possible to provide public wireless on a sufficient scale for the 15,000 or so people who watch the keynotes live? Well, the...

One of the perks of working on JavaOne is sitting up front in the General Sessions. Its a two-edged sword, tho', because if you need to get up to go to the bathroom everybody KNOWS you've left your seat. I'm sitting in the 2nd row center, sort of behind John Fowler and a whole row of folks with flesh-colored microphones pasted to their ears. The guy immediately in front of me however is...

So today I went to the "JavaOne Alumni Fireside Chat" with James Gosling, Rob Gingell, Tim Lindholm and Graham Hamilton sitting on sofas and chatting with Paul Pangaro in front of a fireplace with a framed Mark Rothko poster over the mantle and Graham tossing stuffed tigers and a lengthy Q&A from the audience. The title of this blog refers to the last question of the evening, which was...

Its the Sunday before my fifth JavaOne and already I can see that I'm gonna be really sleepy by next Friday. As usual for me BOFs, Community Meetings and nightime activities will keep me up despite best intentions and in a real sense those after dark activities are the best of what a Technology Conference can give you. For me JavaOne is all about running into old friends, new trends and...
