yesterday i attended the Java in Manila. it's an annual event that sun micro systems host that showcases supposed emerging technology in the java community. like last year, i attended just for the freebies and the lunch. it's nothing fancy, all the the technologies mentioned have emerged if you may call it. AJAX, supposed answer to traffic problems, have been around and i'm actually using it. JSF, sun's replacement and would be web standard [i highly doubt it] for struts is still like a hooker along ermita at 5.00am; no customers, no buyers. if not for the freebies and lunch i would have started a rally outside the rizal ballroom for a refund. but since my company paid for it, and still chargable at that-i shouldn't be rambling what a wait of time that was…

i saw a kindred java soul at the event. actually she saw me first and called. and some othe formers… former officemates, former classmates.
