Day Four thoughts...

No one even mentioned this week is the hidden infrastructure at JavaOne. Powered by many of Sun's 4 S practices(Servers, Storage, Software and Services. JavaCard drove the event this year. When you arrive at Moscone this year, each attendee comes to a SunRay and enters their confirmation number. Optionally they may scan their bar code. Once the user identification has been entered. There JavaOne JavaCard badge is encoded and an badge is printed. There are wireless hotspots to connect. Or the attendee can walk up to a SunRay and enter the JavaCard to get access to the Internet. Each Sunray is connected to a group printer. To get your print out you stick your JavaCard into the Java power Ricoh printer. Wala. To get into a session, your JavaCard is read by a proximity reader and either allows you or denies you. Since my status was permanent standby. I was always flagged with No_Attendee. Access Denied. Goto to standby line. So it is cool to see that Sun has powered JavaOne in a way that is easy to use and really enabling. Call it the silient approach.
