If you aren't making the journey out to San Francisco, California for Sun's JavaOne conference
, I have received word from Sun that they will be hosting a virtual pavilion in Second Life. John Gage, Sun's Chief Researcher, will be issuing a virtual keynote address on Second Life along with a Q&A session on the major happenings from JavaOne 2007. The Sun Pavilion on Second Life will also feature videos, web links, and news releases from Sun. Free virtual JavaOne backpacks and t-shirts will also be given away.
Once you have the Second Life client installed, click this link
and head on over to the Sun Pavilion. Phoronix will also be providing live coverage from JavaOne 2007 all week long.
