Java News from Monday, March 21, 2005

Someone in London once asked me if London was my "second city". I responded, "No, San Jose is." At the end of last week's trip to Santa Clara for Software Development Expo 2005, I had dinner with a new speaker who hadn't been to the Valley before, and hadn't really seen anything outside the hotel and convention center. That inspired me to write up a few notes about the whole Santa Clara Convention Center/Westin Hotel complex and surrounding area, a place where I've spent way too much time over the last decade or so.
