@JavaPolis

I had a great day at JavaPolis. Congratulations to Stephan Janssen, the Belgian Java Users Group, and everyone else involved: you all did a great job. It really was packed. The venue was a total mob scene. After my talk I did a Q&A session, which is one of my favorite things to do. The audience asked great questions. After that, my day was mostly filled with talking to the press. The day ended with an entertaining panel session that was far too short. It was just getting interesting when we ran out of time...

From a javapolian 2007:

Dear James (If I could), thank you so much for having given us chance to meet one of the most iconic persons of the these latest centuries. Where current addicted fans of painting of these last decades did not have chance to meet Leonard Da Vinci, we IT fans did met ours down here in Belgium! Wow!
With more then 12 millions IT professionals all over the world working in java, you helped so many people in the world find a decent job including myself that you should be seen as the bigest employer in the world! Just many thanks and may God be blessed for all He gave you as "immutable" skills and keeps blessing you and your entire familly!
Only one regret: I did not have chance to shake hands! Maybe in the future.
Kris.

Mr. Gosling - Thank you for speaking at Javapolis, you're keynote and Q&A were inspiring. IN your slide set you presented statistics on relative performance between C, C++, C# and Java. I think you provided the source for these stats, but I missed it. Is there any chance you could let me know where these numbers came from? I am promoting Java within my company and this data would be really helpful to me. I did several google searches, but could not find waht I needed. I am very sorry to bother you with such a simple question.
