JavaOne, Anyone?

Whoops. Looks like I just missed the chance to have an opportunity to who knows, maybe get a free ride to JavaOne by doing a BOF or talk.

This happens every couple of years or so apparently.

Anyway, there’s been much complaining about the content of the previous events, and we haven’t seen it get much better last year. Sun’s not too different, either, but the rules of the game have changed a bit - they seem to be much more reluctant to take product pitches, even if they’re open source products, to the stage, which I think is fair.

Now if only they got rid of the “if it’s a Sun technology, or you work for Sun, you’re blessed” meme, this year’s should be quite interesting.
