I'm really thinking about ponying up the cash for JavaOne Online. For $100 you get access to streaming media recordings of all the sessions at the conference. Compared to years past where the costs were literally 10 times as much, that's a screaming deal - and its for both this year's and last year's sessions as well.
I have to say I'm probably going to do it - I think it's well worth it (though I wish they had a demo or two online so you can check the quality before buying). It'd be nice to sit here in the comfort of my own home and check out some of the sessions.
And as I've mentioned ad nauseum, this is what I wanted to do with Avedia as well in 1999... so it's neat to me that someone is doing it. :-)
