    I attended the Genuitec Reception last night at EclipseCon where they unveiled and demonstrated the integration of Matisse with their MyEclipse product.

    Janet, Bjorn, and I made a poster describing the Eclipse legal process. It’s pretty complex. Janet printed up a 3’x4′ poster for the exhibit hall at EclipseCon. It looks a lot cooler in “freakin’ huge” size…

    So here are my personal EclipseCon 2006 highlights so far: The Sun team promoting NetBeans out front. Hilarious! I’m proud to say that I’ve got my full allotment of NetBeans kit: one CD and one bottle of water. Joel Spolsky’s keynote. It’s been a long time since I’ve laughed as...
