Livescribe Smartpen Demo

Java.sun.com  writer Janice Heiss dropped by the Livescribe booth at JavaOne and got a live demo of this kick-butt computerized pen. Of all the things we saw demo'd at JavaOne, this pen takes the cake. It's currently on my Christmas list. Check out the tape and see for yourself!

Quick Update

Video did not happen! I literally ran from the keynote to the Second Life base of operations in Moscone and maybeimright had to dash to another potential video interview! I want to remind folks that we are presenting a schedule of events in Second Life for JavaOne. So if you can't be here in SF, join us inworld. Today I'll be conducting an SDN Focus Group at 11am PST and then we'll have Nandini Ramadi inworld at 1pm PST to talk all things JavaFX. And after yesterday's keynote, I'm even MORE excited to talk about JavaOne. We'll wrap our SL events today with our JavaOne party from 4-5pm PST in Club Java. We'll be giving away some great prizes...be sure to join us!

If you are in SF, stop by the SDN booth on the Trade Show floor for your pass to tonight's SDN Rocks party! It's going to be off the hook and I know for a fact that we are going to have some super stars there ;)

I just realized I have two parties in one day. Crazy! ;) 

Okay, better shake a tail feather and get over to Moscone!

Cheers!

JavaOne Kickoff Keynote! Java + You

My first draft was deleted and I'm running to my second life session. So here is my blog entry, short form. Watch this space later for the keynote takeaways video with me and  maybeimright!

Here we go:

James Gosling, John Gage, and Chris Mellisinos do the welcome and t-shirt toss! Whoot!
JavaOne opening short film: Java + You!
Rich Grean, EVP of Software takes the stage.

Key Takeaways:
Consumers Drive Innovation!
People Define the Experience!

Things I found super-cool:
Kindle from Amazon
JavaFX. Love it. Love it. Love it. ps? Love it.
Also? The room is connected. I can count 6 people around me who are tweeting. Love it!
48,000,000 JRE downloads per month
Glassfish!
NetBeans!
Ubuntu!
Neil Young and Blu-ray. Hello. That is cool.  

Jonathan Schwartz takes the stage to give the 50,000 foot view.

Four fundamental differentiators for Sun:

1. Meet more devices on the planet

2. Make it compelling for developers

3. The Java platform will give more insight to developers about the users of their content

4. It's all going to be free....freely available, philosophically free, no-cost.....truly free!

Here comes the big announcement. Neil Young is on stage!!!

Wanted to do a biography of his music....Archive volume one 45-50 years of music...and he's doing it now on Blu-ray!! He needed technology that would let folks come in at any point...much like a video game. And Blu-ray is providing that technology. And....now we're watching the demo. It's incredible!

Okay....losing battery power...Must.Recharge.Soon.

That's a wrap for now. More later!
