java.net's weblogs

So Java.net has weblogs. Boring ones I suspect. Why? Because this seems to be a "corporate" portal and I doubt that these folks are going to wite about how cool their kids are or how nice their mountain bike ride was (a.k.a. stuff that's interesting). But that's the nature of weblogs - some are good, some aren't. Let me qualify that by saying that some weblogs are interesting to me, and some aren't.

After writing this, I did a little investigating and there are some good bloggers over there (James Duncan Davidson, RSS). There are a couple questions I have. Is the content moderated? Can these bloggers speak their true feelings (can they cuss) - or will Sun remove their posting. Secondly, will they maintain this as their primary blog, or will personal ones continue to be updated. Are we enterering the world of your work blog and your home blog?

Truth is, I probably won't even read them unless they get an RSS feed for all new postings like java.blogs has. I gotta agree with Mike, I'm not changing any bookmarks. But I would like to be convinced otherwise. Hey, at least they're trying - you gotta give them credit for that.

Some answers to your questions on both the Java.net site and on my blog. And thanks for the compliment! (grin)
