JavaOne SF 2006

JavaOne 2006 is now over... phew. What a wild ride!

The Java Posse was a great hit this year, and we met a lot of folks that listen to our podcast. It was really fun for us to get the live feedback that folks appreciate what we've been doing. Wow. I guess a whole lot of folks fill their spare time with our geek-speak.

Dick ordered some crazy-ass hats for us to wear and they really added to the ambiance of our BoF (Birds of a Feather) session. Folks really got a good laugh out of them, and apparently one person liked them so much that Tor's was stolen right off of his head! At least it happened at the bar after our session - and not during the session itself! Of course, perhaps that would have been even funnier...

I'm getting back into the swing of things here at work... so back to the grind. Long live the posse.


  1. I gots to gets me one of them thar hats.

  2. In some ex-communist countries (e.g. Hungary), one can get up to 5 years prison penalty for wearing a red star :)
