NetBeans will be featured at Tokyo2Point0 Monday night. Stop by if you are in the area. Sun Japan engineer Masaki Katakai
will lead off talking about building Web apps with the open source IDE,
and then there will be a talk about Lifestream replacing the blog
(ouch, that may hit close to home for me). Some
food and drink mixed in, too. Should be fun.
It will be good to hear
about NetBeans again since I used to do communications for those guys
more than four years ago now. Interesting how NetBeans really took off
after I left! :) Anyway. Hopefully in the future we can get OpenSolaris
presenting at Tokyo2Point0 as well. Such opportunity all around us now with all of these communities. One of the things I really like probing is how
disparate communities can get together and collaborate, or at least
meet and exchange ideas and opinions. So, not only are we learning how
to cross firewalls and language/cultural barriers, but we ought to be crossing community lines as
well. This happens quite naturally on all of the projects we are
involved with, of course, but it's also an interesting area to explore
more actively as well.
