The Planetarium



Each morning I check the news wires, blogs and get the podcasts downloading to try to stay on top of what's going on in the world of Java for client devices from smartcards to desktops and everything inbetween.

What I really need is one blog that pulls it all together each day.

So I made one. Its called The Planetarium.

Java Podcastapalooza !



Staying on top of what's going on in the Java world is a part of my job I really enjoy. I have a big list of feeds for my favorite bloggers, news sites, and forums. But I tend to skim so I can rush to the next thing. And my emails, IM buddies, everyone's I know's tweets and facebook statuses are just a click away, ready to distract me at any moment.

Sound familiar ?

So I enjoy the times when I am restricted from this skittish behavior: in the car, at the airport, walking to the coffee shop. I enjoy them because I can focus in, without interruption, on some of my favorite technology podcasts.

For those of you who are interested and are looking for something new to tune into in the area of Java and client technologies, I put together a little survey of the ones I subscribe to. And if you feel like it, let me know if you have a top podcast in a comment below.
