And you thought sun's the only one reaching out to the community?

It is nice to see SUN listen to the community and people have started to notice it.

“It’s the most ambitious effort I’ve seen yet by a big company”

It might well be true, but dont discount Microsoft. They are sneaky! They adopted blogs much before SUN came out with java.net. And guess what I found . http://msdn.microsoft.com/webservices/community/blogs/

Microsoft has slowly started to integrate blogs onto MSDN. In my opinion MS has to started to realise the importance of involving communities, although they officially dont talk about it! Its not going to be long before MS does along the lines of Java.net and their shared source initiative. They are very good @ harness their user base thro their newsgroups.

So watch out! It is not the time to rest on the laurels of launching Java.net!
