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!
