Subject Re: Apache Booth At JavaOne

Has the time been selected? I'm sorry if I missed it. Could someone 
please repost it?
If not, how about Monday or Thursday (both days after 5 pm would work 
for me).
By the way, there is another conference concurrently at San Francisco - 
Oreilly's Where 2.0, which is about location-enabled technologies (gps, 
google maps, mobiles, etc). They have a component, which is open to the 
public. It's the Where Fair, on Wednesday 29th from 7:30pm to 10:00pm. I 
don't think you have to register or anything - this part is open to the 
Here's the URL and some info:

General Conference Info
Location-aware technologies combined with mapping and other data are 
poised to create a whole new class of web apps and services. Maps are 
becoming an interface, helping us to visualize and access a variety of 
data. Location is fertile ground for hackers and researchers who mash up 
Google Maps with Craigslist or plug restaurant info into dashboard 
navigation. Call centers, insurance agencies, transportation companies, 
and retailers are finding unconventional internal uses for location 
technologies too.

But where is location-based technology leading us in the larger sense? 
And where's the business model beef? The first Where 2.0 Conference 
brings together the people 
<http://conferences.oreillynet.com/pub/w/39/speakers.html>, projects 
<http://conferences.oreillynet.com/cs/where2005/view/e_sess/7098>, and 
issues <http://conferences.oreillynet.com/pub/w/39/program.html> leading 
the charge into this technological frontier. Join us to debate and 
discuss what's viable now, and what's lurking just below the radar.

The Where Fair
The Where Fair is a science fair-style event that gives participants a 
first-hand look at just a few of the intriguing location-aware 
technologies lurking just below the radar. Fair-goers can discuss the 
ideas behind the demos with the creators, and learn how these 
unconventional new technologies can be adapted into existing business 
strategies. Where Fair projects are being selected from research, 
academia, and yet-to-be-discovered entrepreneurs. The Where Fair 
complements the conference's exhibit hall, which will showcase 
state-of-the-art systems, apps, and services in the location space.
