Memories of the Past Six Years

Floyd and I attended a party at Java One hosted by Cameron Purdy who was the CEO of Tangosol at the time. There were many thought leaders in the Java community at this party, so Floyd seized on this opportunity to demo the site to each of them. Picture Floyd walking around this party with his laptop showing people the site and saying, "InfoQ is the new community site and has AJAX in all the right places."- RoxanneBeverstein
