I normally don’t mess with Java so this is likely a trivial point, I could very well be stating the most obvious of obvious things.
The documentation for Amazon’s EC2 Web Service actually had a well written explanation, but who reads? Scanning the setup instructions I saw:
- Java. — Check, I got that
- Java JRE version 1.5 — Check?

I recently received a nice, polite, relevant email from an account exec. who works for a Social Media company. No surprise there, a few weeks ago I went to a networking event this company was a sponsor. Nothing to weird right, they sponsored a great event, making it very affordable for a bunch of interesting people to get together and talk shop.

A Reminder: Sucessfully engaging your customers requires more than technology. Social media, customer relationship management systems are not a substitute for effective, real communication.
