is the name of a great talk show presented by Greg Papadopolous
on a quasi monthly basis inside Sun, where he invites various people on the forefront of technology and interviews them on their research, allowing us employees to get an idea of what cool things are going on. Well, Hal Stern
my ex boss, who has turned into a real talk radio host, has put together a Innovating@Sun video on UTube entitled Why Operating Systems Matter
, featuring Jonathan Schwartz, Greg Papadopolous and Hal.
Given that a growing number of our contributors are going to be people outside of Sun, people working on open source projects, this seems exactly the right thing to do. After all, you can never do things half secretly. It has to be completely secret or not at all. For example with Project Blackbox (listen to Hal's first podcast), a lot of us Sun insiders did not get any news of it at all (this reminds me that someone recently told me a secret, but I just can't remember what it was...).
Sometimes I get the feeling that Sun is turning into a high quality television station. Are we competing with Arté? :-)
