Previously Un-Aired Interviews from Topcoder and Java One

Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at -

This is a pair of previously un-aired interviews. The first was recorded by Joe, Carl and Dick at TopCoder with Ari Balogh, Vice President of Engineering for Verisign Inc. It is a short but technically meaty interview. The second was a wrap-up of Java One with John and Melinda Weathers of NewEnergy Associates (co-workers of Dick) about their experiences at what was their first Java One.

The quality of both interviews is a product of the recording location - the first, while clear, has a certain amount of background noise, since it was recorded in the TopCoder arena. The second was recorded in a San Francisco hotel after Java One and the sounds of the San Francisco streets is quite prominent. Treat these as adding a little ambience to the interviews :-).
