Informal Chats at JavaOne 2011: You're Invited!
Two days ago, I looked at the calendar and realized with surprise that I'll be on a plane to San Francisco for JavaOne in just three weeks! Time to start getting ready. Having missed last year's JavaOne, there's lots of catching up I'd like to do with lots of people at JavaOne 2011. I know from past experience that the conference is going to fly by, and I don't want to rely solely on chance for meeting up with people. So, I'd like to arrange in advance times when I'll meet some people for informal chats. As we chat, I'll take notes, and ultimately I'll include it all in a java.net blog.
These really will be informal chats, and they can be about any pertinent topic. The main topic of conversation is your choice -- it can be the recent Java core releases, the broad direction of Java's progress, new JVM languages, open source projects you're working on, active JSRs -- you name it: if you want to talk about it, I'm game for chatting with you.
So, if you're interested in arranging an informal meeting with me at a time and place to be determined at JavaOne, contact me here, or send me (@kevin_farnham) a message on Twitter.
See you at JavaOne 2011!

Our latest java.net href="http://www.java.net/archive/spotlight">Spotlight is Kirk Pepperdine's Performance Puzzler with a stack trace:
This performance puzzler showed up in my inbox and it's kind of interesting and so I asked the owner of this data if I might share it with you all. Here is some background. The JVM is running Tomcat with BlueDragon, a CFML engine installed. The application was previously calm but since the move to OS X Lion, the Java process would ramp up to 135% CPU utilization and then just sit there...
