From the Webmink blog:
Along with Mary and others my session proposal for JavaOne was declined (see, working for Sun isn’t the answer, Ted, maybe it’s not a conspiracy against you?).
Never said it was; just means that Sun isn’t letting anyone else up there to speak, either.
Proposal: The JavaOne drinking game! Every time…
… a Sun employee gives a talk
… a JavaOne speaker derides IBM
… a JavaOne speaker says ".NOT" or derides Microsoft (double if they claim .NET can’t run anywhere but Windows, triple if they say that .NET is a proprietary technology that isn’t a standard but Java is)
… there’s an EJB 3 reference
… there’s a Hibernate reference
… there’s an "AOP" reference (particularly by somebody who’s not really an AOP expert *cough* Bill Burke *cough* Marc Fleury *cough*)
… a JavaOne speaker gives a talk on J2ME
… a JavaOne speaker says "Write-Once Run Anywhere"
… you have to take a drink.
My guess is every player is smashed by lunchtime on the first day.
