Someone left a big ol' dumpster in our parking lot...

Over here at the Santa Clara campus, we've been trying to figure out who left a big rusting dumpster in the middle of our parking lot. It's a big black steel container parked across 3 parking spots with the Sun logo on it. D'oh! It's not a dumpster for our on-going Santa Clara campus construction??? It's a marketing stunt from Sun called Project Blackbox??? OMG, I believe they have all lost their minds over there in our server division.

Here's a quote from Tim Bray:

 Me, I have no idea how big 
 the market is. But I’m glad 
 we built it, because it is 
 just totally drop-dead 
 f\*\*\*ing cool.
Uh, language thing aside, if Tim thinks it's cool, it must be cool, right? F, yeah? :-) It still looks like a dumpster, though. I hope they don't mind I threw my gumwraper in it.

I'm thinking the engineers over here in Java Micro Edition just will never understand our big iron Sun brothers: Their boxes are a lot bigger than ours and they have potty mouths. ;-)

You'll be Quaking in your Java ME boots soon!

First Doom, now Pulse Interactive will make Quake Mobile available for next-generation 3D graphics-enabled Java cell phones. It will display much more complex three dimensional environments than current Java ME games on mobile phones.

See:

First Doom, now Quake on your Java phone

Here's a quote:

 "It may, however, resemble the 
  original PC version. The gap 
  between hand-held processing 
  power and desktop processing 
  power from that time has been 
  dramatically reduced."
More and more, your Java ME phone will be an impressive place to write advanced games. Sharpen up your Java pencils, everyone! It's time to get a-programmin' with the Quake engine on these new fandangle cell phones.

It takes a village

In order for OpenSolaris to do well, here's an article that points to IDC's assessment on what it will take to really be an effective force in the open source world.

See:

IDC says OpenSolaris should do as Java does

Here's a quote:

 Sun could establish a strong community 
 supporting its product, and this
 community could increase interest in 
 Solaris and Sun's hardware products. 
 Sun has been able to build a strong 
 community around the Java platform 
 (based on Sun's original Java products, 
 which were widely adopted by many vendors)
So, in order for OpenSolaris to do well, it needs to follow what Java technology has done. That's the ticket! Easy downloads, online docs, big conferences in San Francisco (with a video gamers lounge), and a Micro Edition that fits on cell phones. Wait-a-minute... Solaris on a cell phone... Hm... If I only had dtrace right now on the J2ME phone I'm working on! That would be cool! :-)
