NetBeans Girls Missing at EclipseCon...

Guest Author

There is a lot of disappoitment in the Eclipse community caused by the fact that NetBeans girls will be missing this year at EclipseCon. In fact, Ian Skerrett (director of Eclipse Foundation's marketing) wrote an open petition to Jonathan Schwartz to send NetBeans girls to EclipseCon. If that won't be possible, he wants at least the NetBeans boys (me and Tim Boudreau) to be sent.

NetBeans Girls at EclipseCon 2006

It seems that attendance numbers of EclipseCon are in danger, because people were hoping to meet NetBeans girls again. And thus other people join the petition and ask us to send them. What do you think, should we send NetBeans girls to EclipseCon this year again? :)

    The blond one is really hot. But I don't think the brunette justifies a petition.

    Your link for "attendance numbers...in danger" is a curious choice. This one would be better.
    I, unfortunately, missed them completely last year. They were outside (and with all the excitement at the conference, I didn't get outside much); I assume because they didn't have conference passes and conference security wouldn't let them inside. Perhaps Sun should spring for an exhibit hall pass this year so they can keep warm.
    Imagine the negative press if one of them were to freeze on a chilly California morning...
