    Thursday, February 9, 2006 - 09:52 by Mike Milinkovich
    Simon Phipps wrote an interesting blog post musing about the how the Japanese business model of interlocking companies (keiretsu) and the long tail intersect to describe the functionings of open source communities. Basically, the idea is that open source communities can be described as “code keiretsus around a long tail...

    GPLv3 Update

    Wednesday, February 8, 2006 - 17:10 by Mike Milinkovich
    I thought I would mention a few early thoughts on the GPLv3 progress, and the impact it may have on the Eclipse community. (In other words, I am most emphatically not talking about the merits of the Free Software Foundation (FSF)’s proposed GPL revisions in general.) Janet Campbell from the...

    Adobe Developer Summit

    Wednesday, February 8, 2006 - 16:51 by Mike Milinkovich
    Now there’s a company that know how to treat its developers. 2400 hundred technical people (1200 from out of town) all in the San Jose Convention Centre. That is a non-trivial investment of time and money into team building. But if you’re going to work in a distributed environment, it...

    The Six Pillars of Eclipse

    Monday, February 6, 2006 - 09:07 by Anonymous (not verified)
    In 2005, we spent a lot of time talking about Eclipse as being more than just a Java IDE. However I don’t think we did a very good job saying what Eclipse really is. EclipseCon is quickly approaching, so I would like to try to take the opportunity to start...

    Eclipse for the World

    Friday, February 3, 2006 - 13:00 by Mike Milinkovich
    Perhaps it’s because of my recent trip to China, but it is becoming increasingly clear that internationalization is a very big deal for everyone in the software world. The ability to fully enable products and applications for double-byte and bi-directional languages is key. Enter ICU4J. One look at the JDK...

    Eclipse Installed

    Thursday, February 2, 2006 - 22:47 by Wayne Beaton
    How neat-o keen, golly-gee whiz is this? Be sure to get your “Eclipse installed” sticker from your favourite Eclipse Foundation staffer. Coming soon to a conference or seminar near you. The folks attending the Eclipse in Motion seminars will be the first large-ish group to get these very exclusive stickers...
