First A-list blogger mentioning java.net sighted.
Dan Gillmor is the first A-list blogger I've seen to mention java.net. Dan is considered a pioneer in weblog journalism and as such has a monolithic audience who read his posts daily.
Sun is doing interesting things with its java.net site, including "community" functions such as weblogs and even Wikis. It's the most ambitious effort I've seen yet by a big company -- even though it's a tech company -- to use the Web in a more conversational way.
Thanks Dan! Of course he just might be feeling guilty about Simon's blog post.
