JAVA = Innovation
I'm sitting in the general session to be given by IBM's Craig Hayman, Vice President IBM WebSphere, IBM Software Group.
In the pre-screens, it says "JAVA = Innovation" ...
Change and innovation comes from combining ideas that already exist, i.e. by digesting and transforming history in the context of present.
No history exists without a community to propagate it!
The history of Java and the ideas that drive it are no exception!
