I called a meeting with just the Class A partners — not telling them what the meeting was about — and we planned to meet at the office thirty minutes after closing time. Sad to say about my own company, but thirty minutes after five o'clock, and you don't have to worry about running into too many employees. In fact, there was just one employee there, the one named Eric that I wanted to make a partner offer to that George doesn't like, and he left just as we got around to starting the meeting.

In a blog entry, Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz writes about Project Vector, which he says will probably be renamed the Java Store. I know that a lot of companies are coming out with their own "stores" now, but for me, this is probably the most interesting Java announcement in years.
