    Project Phoenix

    Monday, May 2, 2005 - 14:31 by Mike Milinkovich
    One of the many hats that I wear is project lead for the Phoenix project at Eclipse. This is the project that we have proposed to rebuild the eclipse.org website. The project is being set up using the same open source rules of engagement that other projects use at Eclipse...

    Eclipse RCP RSS Reader

    Friday, April 29, 2005 - 08:09 by Anonymous (not verified)
    I must admit I am just getting into the world of Blogs, RSS and RSS Readers. I know, I am a bit slow. I’ve been using Bloglines as my RSS Reader and really struggle with the primitive browser interface. I just found an Eclipse RCP based reader called RSSOwl...

    A Great Week

    Thursday, April 28, 2005 - 21:58 by Mike Milinkovich
    Well, I am just about to pack it in and head to Tokyo’s Narita Airport for the flight home to Ottawa. The place is going to be a madhouse, as today is the start of Golden Week and is the largest travel day each year in Japan. Not very good...

    Show off your RCP application

    Thursday, April 28, 2005 - 16:15 by Anonymous (not verified)
    I think Eclipse RCP is an exciting part of the Eclipse story. The ability to build rich client applications with a component model that allows for dynamic updates of new features and patches is pretty compelling. In fact, I think for ISVs and open software projects it makes an excellent...

    Eclipse Japan

    Thursday, April 28, 2005 - 15:54 by Anonymous (not verified)
    The Eclipse Japan web site just went live on eclipse.org. We are very lucky to have strong support in Japan from some key companies: NTT Comware, Hitachi, Fujitsu, NEC and IBM. I think it is great to have these companies helping provide the Japanese content for eclipse.org. Eclipse is doing...

    Analyst View of Eclipse

    Tuesday, April 26, 2005 - 09:09 by Anonymous (not verified)
    Today I had the opportunity to listen to a webinar Eclipse Changes the Game for Application Development by Carl Zetie of Forrester Research . Unfortunately I think you need to be a client of Forrester to see the slides but I was lucky enough to be an invited guest. I’ve...

    Brand Hijack

    Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 16:31 by Anonymous (not verified)
    I have just finished reading a new book on branding called Brand Hijack: marketing without marketing , by Alex Wipperfurth. I’m often pretty skeptical about ‘marketing/branding’ books but this one was pretty good. They author was involved with the marketing at Napster but also uses Linux, Apple, and others as...

    Greetings from Japan

    Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 07:19 by Mike Milinkovich
    This week I am in Tokyo speaking at a number of events and meeting with a number of member companies. This is my first time in Japan so I’m pretty excited about the trip, even though the jetlag already has me reeling. The first event I am speaking at is...

    Eclipse Around the World

    Wednesday, April 20, 2005 - 10:04 by Anonymous (not verified)
    One of the really cool things about Eclipse is that there is lots of Eclipse events going on all around the world. These are events organized by people in the Eclipse community and in the native language. For instance, NTT Comware, Hitachi, Fujitsui, NEC and IBM Japan have started an...

    What is "Eclipse" anyways?

    Tuesday, April 19, 2005 - 22:37 by Mike Milinkovich
    One of the interesting things about Eclipse is trying to define exactly what the label means. There is no doubt that it is an overloaded term. Eclipse is a plug-in based platform for building and integrating tools. And now with RCP, a platform for building and integrating applications. Eclipse is...
