Nothing much has zoomed in the last 6 months.
Went to JavaOne and found out that this years JavaOne was a recap of the previous one. I like Java and I think Sun does a reasonable job with it but this year was basically 'things go according to plan and stuff will be released in fall or next year'.
Found out that OpenID is supported on sourceforge, that is nice. Went to www.myopenid.com and registered a persona to try an alternative to this site. I hope it zooms.
