    Isn'this the same date as LinuxWorld Conf & Expo...in fact isn;t it the same dates and even same building? GREAT, for once I can get to two conferences simultaneously and get double value from the air fare that I'm asking my boss to approve tomorrow. Cool!

    Interesting to see Eclipse and Microsoft side by side with Sun's JCP - the days of interoperability really do seem to be edging nearer. Perhaps this is what Web services has done, more than anythung else, for the industry.

    The e-bay API's are awesome...I'm very keen to hear Matt Ackley
