    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 had...

    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 case...

    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...

    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...

    I just noticed that Tim Boudreau at Sun has taken down his recent blog that was very negative about Eclipse. Seems like he was having a bad day. As someone who on occassion has sent a couple of late night e-mails that I later regret, I can certainly relate. I...

    First, What Really Matters

    I am very fortunate to have a professional position which I thoroughly enjoy. Really, not that many people get to have a job that they are really passionate about. Over time, I expect that this blog will be filled with postings about Eclipse and its various developments. That’s what I...

    Have you noticed that ever since EclipseCon, Sun has turned up the noise and FUD level with respect to Eclipse. I am disappointed that Sun is taking the low road but it seems they are a bit panicked about some of the success Eclipse is enjoying. I am a big...
