My Own Personal Easter Egg

There was a semi-recent post to TechCrunchIT by Steve Gilmore about how software companies are transitioning from big bang product releases to a rolling thunder model. In that post, Steve includes a video interview with Jonathan Schwartz. OK, it's really a puppet of Jonathan, and it's highly entertaining. I don't want to spoil the video for you, so I'll avoid details, but in the video Jonathan tells people to go to sun.com/ponytail. Well, I did, and all I got was a 404. Pretty lame. So, I contacted the web team that manages sun.com and suggested that they put something at that address. Lowe and behold, they did. It's a redirect to sun.com/software/opensource. It's really encouraging to me to see that Sun still has a sense of humor. Sometimes I wonder...

Comments:

I think they might have had quite a few requests that that link go live ... I know at least 6 independent requests from Sun colleagues that were also registered ;-)

You just love bursting bubbles, don't you? Some people. Well, I will instead claim to be the straw that broke the camel's back. And enough with the bubble bursting!
