But I did a double take when I saw that Neil Young was going to make an appearance at JavaOne tomorrow. Not just to play some songs, but to make an announcement with Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz.
Neil recently said he was postponing the release of his Archives project (in the works longer than Guns and Roses Chinese Democracy) so it could be released on Blu-Ray DVD, which uses Java scripting for the multi-media menu functions.
Could tomorrow's announcement be about the Archives project? Weird that Young would align with a big company though, given his very consistent and vocal stance against anything that smacks of corporate sponsorship.
But consistency hasn't always been Neil's strong point - he was pro-Reagan in the 80s and his musical genre shifts speak for themselves. So, we'll see what this is all about.
