JavaWorld just posted it's first Java Technology Insider podcast with yours truly.
Daniel Steinberg sat down with me at OSCON and we talked about Swing, 2D, and the present and future of Java Desktop technologies. The book may possibly have come up too, I can't quite recall.
By the way, after the discussion in the comments about podcasts on an earlier blog posting, I decided that, in fact, podcasts in the gym completely rock. It's a good way to hear something that you might not otherwise have time to squeeze into that busy day. (I'll let you decide whether this podcast suits you; I aim for other, more intellectual podcasts, like "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" and "The Onion Radio News.")
