I thought I would update the list of best selling books at JavaOne. It was sad to see Ruby for Rails drop off the list. Looks like AJAX was a popular topic, taking 6 of the spots on the list.

The After Dark party at Java one featured the Mythbusters. I really enjoy the show, so getting to meet them for a brief moment was way cool. They really liked the winning t-shirt launcher. The party was cool loud pounding urban techno with a cool light show.

James Gosling should let Adam and Jamie build a t-shirt cannon for next year. The entrants would then compete against Adam and Jamie for longest throw and most radical design.
