Listener Feedback

Two ints and a Float are in a bar. They spot an attractive Double on her own.

The first int walks up to her. "Hey, baby", he says, "my VM or yours". She slaps him and he walks back dejected.

The second int walks over. "Hey, cute-stuff, can I cook your Beans for breakfast". After a
quick slapping, he too walks back.

The Float then ambles over casually: "Were those two primitive types bothering you?", he remarks.
"Yes. I'm so glad you're here", she says. "They just had no Class!"

Previously Un-Aired Interviews from Topcoder and Java One

Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at http://javaposse.com -

This is a pair of previously un-aired interviews. The first was recorded by Joe, Carl and Dick at TopCoder with Ari Balogh, Vice President of Engineering for Verisign Inc. It is a short but technically meaty interview. The second was a wrap-up of Java One with John and Melinda Weathers of NewEnergy Associates (co-workers of Dick) about their experiences at what was their first Java One.

The quality of both interviews is a product of the recording location - the first, while clear, has a certain amount of background noise, since it was recorded in the TopCoder arena. The second was recorded in a San Francisco hotel after Java One and the sounds of the San Francisco streets is quite prominent. Treat these as adding a little ambience to the interviews :-).
