@ JavaOne 2006 -- Using a Hacker Station before the Storm
By MortazaviBlog on May 15, 2006
I just picked up my JavaOne 2006 Conference card and am walking through the underground hallway between Mascone Center North and Mascone Center South.
Here, in a portion of this hallway, we have "Hacker Stations" on both sides. These are beautifully designed SunRay 170 machines. (It would be unfair for a JavaOne 2006 attendee not to fall in love with this SunRay. In fact, I wish I had one in my own office or at home!)
I slide my card in, and my profile comes up in rapid sequence — it brings with it an enterprise at my finger tips.
Right away, I compile this blog, using the tools on my desktop, which include Firefox.
All it takes for JavaOne 2006 attendees to fall in love with the Sun-driven enterprise behind JavaOne, is to use their JavaOne 2006 card to log on through one of these SunRay machines, as I've done now...and on another Firefox tab, I check my mail using EdgeMail.
Who needs a laptop at a JavaOne conference - I can even login to a remote machine to develop and build a piece of software - all using my little JavaOne 2006 Card on a "Hacker Station" (read SunRay 170)! My own account, my own profile — More later!
