Do you know that Java can evolve right? Do you ever wonder how that happens behind the scenes? Well, we had a great opportunity to talk to the person that coordinates all that magic from the underside, and discuss, albeit briefly what we feel is great and not-so-great within the JCP. We also get to hear first-hand how changes are happening. Who really controls a change in Java (JSR)? how is leadership transition handled?, and what can we do about it. All questions raised by the most vested host we have (Michael), so take a listen!

Also, what do we do with conferences that have great technical content, but controversial speakers? Is it right to attend? or is it one of those "Knowledge is neither good or bad"?

Also in other news, IBM both announces layoffs, and also comes back and sues groupon for infringing on its patents. What could it all mean?

And Microsoft building Sql Server on Linux? Xamarin acquired by Microsoft? This is a very different Microsoft now! What gives?

Oracle lost another evangelist. Reza Rahman, the Java Evangelist for Glassfish and Java EE left! Is Oracle cutting back on their Java EE Investment? Or even in their Java investment?
