Social Networking Your Music with Java ME.

Happy Monday everyone. In between recording webinars with my partner in all things social media, Heidi, having to re-shoot videos because we were laughing too hard and planning for all things JavaOne, I was able to catch up a bit on some cool technology news. Strands, the team behind the social music site, MyStrands, have updated their Social Media Player for Symbian S60 and Java equipped phones. Picking up all the music on your device, Strands can recommend similar artists and songs, match you up with users that have similar musical tastes, and helps you navigate your musical neighborhood.  The cool news about this update is the inclusion of support for Last.fmand the sending of your track information to that service too. I think that is pretty sweet and will have to test it out on my Java enabled mobile phone...stay tuned on how it works for me...its not like I need any other excuse to get more music on my phone. ;-)

tick...tock...tick...tock...

Hello everyone! My friend and co-worker, Cass (who works on all things SDN) and I made a video on Friday about our countdown to JavaOne and what is going on with us... we had quite a few laughs while we were trying to do this, but we think the end result turned out well. Enjoy! Look for us on Monday when my partner in crime, Heidi, joins us behind the camera lens! Oh, and while you are here, stop by Terri's blog and see the cool video we shot with Tim Cramer and Stephen Hahn on OpenSolaris. Lots of cool stuff happening in the next few weeks...make sure to stay tuned to find out what. Enjoy your day!

free javaone passes!

Happy Wednesday everyone! This week seems to be flying by and JavaOne is all I have been breathing and living for the last few months. I just got an email in my inbox about a pretty sweet offer from my friends in SDN...check it out:  If you are not a SDN member, but have always dreamed of being one, the time has come! I have been given five (5) passes to JavaOne and will give them to the first five of you who email me at Jennifer.Winger@Sun.COM.

There are some rules, however... ;-)  

1. You can not be a current member of SDN

2. You will be registered for SDN to recieve your pass

3. You can't be a Sun employee

If you fit that criteria, then you, my readers, are all waxed up and ready to ride your way to JavaOne 2008!

Please send me the following information:

First and Last Name

Email address

Country of Origin

 I will let the lucky winners know the good news tonight!
