Following Sun on Twitter

It was pure serendipity. Last weekend, I responded to a challenge posted on Sun's internal bloggers alias to find a way to provide an RSS feed of all the known Sun Microsystems Twitter users. Here's what I did ...

I set up a Twitter account "sun_follow" that is now following (or has requested to follow) each person with whose name is listed on the list of known Sun Microsystems Twitter users.

I am monitoring that wiki page and will add new entrants on that page to the sun_follow account. I also set up a new "planet" on planets.sun.com to provide another view of all the tweets from these folks.

This little exercise yielded the following links:

Now for the serendipity ...

I didn't have the privilege to fly to California to participate in JavaOne this year. But I finished my little "Sun on Twitter" project just in time to monitor a rich stream of tweets from several Sun employees who were particpating in CommunityOne yesterday and the main JavaOne event today. Thank you fellow Sunnies, for your Twittering! And thanks for a interesting little set of technology for making this little project possible.

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
