Over the Top

[San Francisco, CA]

Today, Alfred Chaung gave his keynote speech for eWorld. Prior to his speech, the stage was full of lights, noise, lightning, smoke and five big screens. At the appointed moment, the center screen shattered, and Alfred strolled out to the hooting and hollering of the 2800 or so attendees.

Enjoyable? Well, yeah. I would’ve been much better impressed with more content and less theatrics!

The rest of the sessions today were about average. BEA’s push for SOA and Liquid Computing ring no bell with me, and that is what their push for the forseeable future will be. For my day-to-day world, neither play much, and will be year or two away. It’s fun to see the future, but only when I get to play in it!
