JavaOne

Another day, another keynote. A fellow from IBM talked about cloud stuff. I sat through a lot of nebulous cloud talks, but this guy was good. He had a sensible slide on architecural alternatives, explained why we should all go out and buy a device for a ”data grid”—a memory device for sharing data among VMs—and he gave a demo of some software for configuring an app to run...

I figured I'd just muscle my way through to the press area,...

Sadly, that wasn't enough to get me the coveted Alumni badge—my email address wasn't in the right Oracle database, and showing my previous conference blogs didn't impress the conference staff. I complained to Sharat Chander, the marketing person at Oracle who...
