JavaOne Day -2

by Robert Cooper

So I am going to break rules here, I am pretty sure, six ways from Sun-day (haHA!).

I am pretty sure I have never commented on this before, because, I agree with the 16,000 of you who will tell me it is in bad taste, but the first thing that always stands out in my mind about San Francisco? There are no black people here. Not that there are none. That is silly. I, however, come from Atlanta, a city with a 65% African American population. Moreover, I live in Midtown Atlanta. given the population averages, in my "hood" you are likely black and/or gay. In spite of its reputation, a city of straight white/asian/latino people is definitely a big change for me.
