From Jane, a report that GlassFish v3 now also supports the popular Closest Matching Commands from its predecessor, GFv2.

Up in Castellers I posted preliminary download numbers for GlassFish Server. I regularly get surprised reactions when I point out that GlassFish has many more downloads than JBoss, so, if you are curious, check it out.

A warm welcome to Bill Wilkins to the blogosphere. Bill is the director for SOABI at Sun and, thus, responsible for OpenESB. Check out his first three posts: Establishing OASIESB, Community Collaboration and Growing Our Appeal.

From the Engadget - the land of toys - a report of TikiTag, RFID for the masses, which may even be useful for something besides Tagging cats :-)

And, from CERN, the inventors of the World Wide Web, an invitation to a Live Broadcast of the First Bean of the Large Hadron Collider. See you at the WebCast, if the world does Not End Then!.
