    Eclipse in Bejing

    Thursday, January 19, 2006 - 08:55 by Mike Milinkovich
    I’m heading to the airport soon, and wanted to blog about the week before leaving. I’ve been in Bejing this week for the first annual Eclipse Day in China. This event was hosted by Tsinghua University, the premier technical university in China. (Sometimes referred to as the “MIT of China”.)...

    Question Conventional Wisdom

    Saturday, January 14, 2006 - 20:43 by Mike Milinkovich
    As already referenced by Bjorn and Ward, this article by John Mark Walters makes for some very interesting reading. I highly recommend it, and I am already looking forward to reading the next one in his series. The article has some interesting implications for Eclipse. I would venture to say...

    Java Detour

    Sunday, December 18, 2005 - 21:16 by Mike Milinkovich
    After the Eclipse Board and Council meetings I headed down to San Diego to meet with the Executive Committees of the Java Community Process. I was there to have a conversation on what Eclipse is and what we do. On the way to SFO, we drove by this coffee shop...

    Eclipse Meetings

    Friday, December 16, 2005 - 00:22 by Mike Milinkovich
    Every once in a while we try out something new and it really works well. Some months back I realized that Bjorn booked the Council meetings the same week as the Board meeting. It’s hard for me to be in two places at once. The solution? Co-locate the two meetings...

    Phoenix Rises

    Friday, November 25, 2005 - 15:20 by Mike Milinkovich
    We’re getting close to the final countdown for our first release of Phoenix on Nov. 30th. Or, in other words, finally switching the www.eclipse.org home page over to our new look and feel. The look and content have really come together in the last couple weeks and days. There’s nothing...

    Open Budgeting

    Tuesday, November 22, 2005 - 12:50 by Mike Milinkovich
    We’re currently going through the process of creating an Eclipse Foundation budget for next year. A major part of this process is deciding what programs we want to support. We would all like to get community feedback on the programs we’re currently thinking about. Better yet, I would love to...

    Eclipse and the GPL 3.0

    Thursday, November 3, 2005 - 11:17 by Mike Milinkovich
    Yesterday I was on a panel at the Open Source Business Conference with Eben Moglen, Diane Peters and Jim Harvie. The title of the session was “GPL 3.0: Directions, Implications, Casualties“, but what it was really about was providing a venue for the Free Software Foundation to talk publicly for...

    The Highest Compliment

    Wednesday, November 2, 2005 - 08:55 by Mike Milinkovich
    There comes a time in the life of every open source community when they know they’ve made it…that the work they are doing is fundamentally changing the industry and impacting how people look at the development landscape. So when is that moment? Is it when it hits 50 million downloads...

    Whirlwind Tour

    Wednesday, October 19, 2005 - 19:42 by Mike Milinkovich
    So I am currently at the Hyatt Regency Burlingame — fondly remembered as the site of our most recent EclipseCon — for the Zend/PHP conference. This is my third conference in eight days. London, Paris and San Francisco in eight days. Remind me to never do that again. But the...
