The Sun Community of Blogs

James Governor was reading some blogs the other day and found one he felt we should take notice of:

Came across this blog a little while ago. Written by a Sun reseller -- a super evangelist for the company in Portugal. I really like Mr Cardoso's voice ... that kind of passion is something Sun needs to amplify and celebrate. One thing that worries me at times when I check out Sun blogrolls is they are often all Sun employees. Don't forget to open it out guys.

Well, James, that's a very good idea. I completely agree. And many of us here get the notion that there's a lot of passion and talent out there.

BSC is all Sun employees. And so is Planet Sun. But you can find a mixture of Sun and non-Sun employees blogging about Java at java.net. And over at Planet Solaris you can find Sun Solaris engineers and external community developers from the OpenSolaris Pilot Program blogging together. Their links are also at opensolaris.org. And you don't know who is internal to Sun and who is external to the community until you click on the link. We're building one community.

 David Edmondson created Planet Solaris. Here's what he said in his blog right around the time Planet Solaris was born:

After reading about the OpenSolaris bloggers in Jim Grisanzio’s blog, I started to subscribe to their feeds. After adding half a dozen it became obvious that other people would probably want to read the same set of feeds, so I created Planet Solaris. The intention is to gather weblogs from people who are working on or talking about Solaris whether they are employed by Sun or not. The current subscription list is split roughly 50:50 between staff and non-staff, which seems like a pretty good start.

So, if you write about Solaris in your blog and would like to be included in Planet Solaris, drop me an email.

So, calling all Solaris bloggers. Give us a shout!
