If I had to tell you what amazed me at Gartner Symposium 2006, I would have to say that it's my veteran collogue Executive Editor David Berlind tearing up the blogsphere. David had to be carrying one of the biggest portable pro-audio recording devices I've ever seen (with his recovering back) and he's been posting up a storm and he still had room for JavaOne coverage being hosted next door. Here is his first day's coverage.
- JavaOne Slot Car Race: the Indy 500 of software?
- Tera-architecture. Gartner says bank on it.
- Global processor head count please
- Gartner: User-controlled content delivery to set enterprise expectations
- Gartner: Commoditization means consumers will wag the enterprise IT dog
- Versus GooYa (or YaGoo?), Ballmer's secret sauce will have to be special (Ok this wasn't Gartner coverage but he still snuck it in today)
- Doing the Moscone Shuffle: From Gartner to JavaOne and back again
I think he got a podcast or two in there somewhere but it isn't showing up on the list yet. I gotta hand it to you David, you are the blog king! I'm sure if they had a record for blogs in a day or held a contest, David Berlind would win it outright. But in all seriousness, I recommend reading David's Symposium coverage rather than counting them since there are some interesting things covered.
