Azul Systems has several things it needs to overcome. First, I bet you didn't know that most J2EE application servers including WebSphere, JBoss, BEA WebLogic and others have fundamental design issues that prevent it from using more than a dozen or so CPUs. I bet you won't learn of this from your friendly neighborhood industry analyst. Furthermore, it takes special skill to write an application that can leverage that many CPUs. Azul Systems will continue to struggle until the industry at large figures out how to design better software.
It is especially difficult for ECM vendors though.
I would add discussions in the blogosphere regarding Smalltalk, enterprise architecture processes and CMMI.
TJX has been given until 2009 to get compliant with PCI. Folks have to understand that PCI isn't really about protecting consumers but more about protecting the Visa and Mastercard brands.
Kim Cameron comments on Barbie. I wonder when he will comment on plans for Active Directory to be an OpenID Identity Provider?

I couldn't have said it better myself!
Bex Huff is off to Oracle Open World. Maybe he could figure out why the word open is in the title?
I wonder if Oracle Fusion supports a similar notion?
NestedVM provides binary translation for Java Bytecode. This is done by having GCC compile to a MIPS binary which is then translated to a Java class file. Hence any application written in C, C++, Fortran, or any other language supported by GCC can be run in 100% pure Java with no source changes.
