Shortly after rejoining Sun in August, I was sitting at Gordon Biersch with some of the engineers from our Broomfield team. They were telling me about all the cool "Web 2.0" technologies they'd been working with. I didn't know them very well yet and thought it would be fun to see if they were really as good as they claimed. I figured we should find a cool project for them. Together we came up with the idea of taking all the Solaris registration data that comes from the Update Connection and put it on a Google Map.
Well, a couple weeks later it actually appeared! Turns out these guys are really good. I'd like to send out a special thanks to the team that built this:
- Jamey Wood
- John Lilly
- Todd Wichers
- Jeff Shoup
- Bruce Wu
