Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, made a surprise appearance at Web 2.0.

Terry Semel, CEO of Yahoo!

yeah i know... we're a web2.0 colors wannabe. what-EV-ur.

Mitchell Baker (President and “Chief Lizard Wrangler” of the Mozilla Foundation) and Jonathan Schwartz (CTO of Sun), interviewed by Tim O’Reilly this morning at Web2.0

 

By a show of hands: I would estimate Mac users in the audience were about 30%, and about 10x the number of OpenOffice users.

 

Schwartz: Everything Sun does will be open source.

 

Everyone wanted us to announce that we are doing an AJAX office suite, but I don’t think that makes sense. The Google announcement is that we are working together. We are going to combine our distribution efforts. We could offer VOIP or a lot of things. Let your mind run wild. We could store documents and edit in a distributed fashion. We will combine distribution with technology. The power is in the community, in the distribution the product.

 

O’Reilly: If you have to advertise it, it’s probably not web 2.0

 

Schwartz: Developers don’t buy things, they join them. It’s a community not a marketplace. Transparency is a competitive weapon.

 

Blogging is a better use of time than 1:1 interviews. But I have certainly caused a few coronaries in the Sun legal department.

After a cheerful flickr sticker exchange…. and Caterina’s first time drinking Red Bull. =)

i LOVE to itnerview bram cohen. i think this is the third time now. he has no artifice. sure, he's CONTRARIAN and makes silly jokes, but i can put up with that if i know that he answers my questions without thinking HOW he should answer them. he just answers. AND, he takes the time to explain CODING to me! we talked about VESTA and merging and version control and cherry picking.
