Also we have a special event coming up - our 100th episode which will be recorded live in front of an audience at the Googleplex in Mountain View. This event is open to the public and will take place at 6.30pm on January 22nd 2007 in Tech Talk 42 (in Building 42). Please let us know through the Java Posse Google group if you are planning on attending so that we can get a head count. This is of course a free event. Keep an eye on http://javaposse.com or the Google group for more details.

This is building 42 in the Googleplex - Building 42 is shown in the center of the map. At 6ish you should find the parking is clearing out so it should not be hard to find a space, although there is some building work taking place to install solar panels.

JRuby

We were lucky enough to get an interview with Charles Oliver Nutter and Thomas Enebo all about JRuby as they flew into town for a visit to Sun HQ

We were lucky enough to get to talk to Mark Reinhold, Rich Sands and Eric Chu from Sun who took time out of their extremely busy schedule to talk with us all about the open source Java announcement (Java has been released under GPL v2 - the rumors were all true!). If you have questions about what it all means, you may just find the answers in this podcast, developer to developer.
