Notes from Scott's keynote.
John Gage mentions that all the badges are RFID tagged. Talked about
some of the things that can be done with this data. Who went to the
most sessions? What session had the most attendees?
Talked about SeeBeyond acquisition, which just transacted this
morning. SeeBeyond is an integration company. Competes with TIBCO. I
think this buy does give Sun a competitive position in integration for
More content about how far Java has come.
Touts the success of JCP. 912 members. Do people agree that JCP
works? Being a spec lead myself, I think it does, and is getting
Java Card. Olivier Piou, Axalto.
Sharing. It would be interesting to measure the amount of wealth
created by Sun vs other companies. Industries and markets
created. Touts the sharing successes of Sun. Help drive TCP/IP adoption
against Microsoft Lan Manager. NFS. Claiming JCP's responsibility for
success of spread of Java.
Talks about the digital divide. I hope he explains why eliminating
the digital divide makes money for Sun? Bono and UN held up as examples
of the power of sharing.
Dimensions of digital divide. Healthcare. Slide showing labyrinth
of nodes to get healthcare. Barriers in healthcare: rising costs,
healthcare dollars wasted, shortage of providers. Then shows a slide
cleaning up the labyrinth with NHIN.
Brazil video. Every Brazillian has full health care. Held up as an
example of the benefits of a national ID system. They said very little
about security and privacy aspects.
Fabiane Nardon CTO Brazillian National Health Care System. Makes the
case for the real world benefits of the system.
Next dimension: Education. Another labyrinth slide. Teacher
education, access to best content, technology obselence, broken funding
model. "Not sure we need campuses other than for parents to get the
kids out of the house when they're 17 or 18." But to his credit, he
does mention the benefits of socialization of a real campus. Glad to
see it. JEDI: Java Education and Development Initiative. Global
Education Learning Community (GELC). A java.net community. Open source
curriculum. Using Java Community Process to develop text books. A
great idea. Then mentions the student developer community.
Sharing through ART. Go bid on Java ART. Raise money for the East
Palo Alto Education charity.
Duke's choice award.
