The JavaOne team finally took to heart the attendee feedback for "more community involvement" in content selection. After whipping up a "friendly and collaborative" legal agreement, we enlisted the expertise of these folks to review, comment and selection of technical session and birds-of-a-feather. I've also identified the track that they were involved in reviewing:

Andre Charland: Nitobi, President - Tools and Languages track

Dan Creswell: Lone Crusadar Ltd - Cool Stuff track

Neal Gafter: Google, Software Engineer - Core Platform track

Ben Galbraith: Self-Employed, Consultant - Next Generation Web and Desktop tracks

Leonardo Galvao: SouJava / Java Magazine Director / Editor-in-Chief - Open Source track

Romain Guy: Freelance Software Engineer - Desktop track

Cay Horstmann: Professor - Tools and Languages track

Stephan Janssen: BeJUG Chairman - Open Source track

Next time: the long awaited conclusion of JavaOne Conference Call for Papers, The Sequel! Having wrapped up on Dec 15, 2006, it was an amazing (but predictable) climax.
