In case you didn't catch this, a couple of days ago Tim O'Reilly asked the Twittersphere if they'd like to put any questions to the CEO of Sun, about an hour before he was to interview him on-stage at the Web 2.0 Expo in SF this week. (Photo by James Duncan Davidson.) Well, Tim was wondering why he wasn't seeing any questions coming through on Twitter, till he realized (too late) that he had his Twitter app settings wrong on his smart phone! (Unfortunately, he was only getting replies from those he was following.) Well, I wasn't on Tim's follow list, so my question, which I submitted within minutes of when he Twittered about this, was missed ... along with a whole bunch of other people's questions.
A few hours after the session ended, I saw a tweet from Tim where he graciously had decided he would do a blog post to ask those Twittered questions of Schwartz via email, after the fact. That exchange took a day or so, but Tim just posted the resulting Q&A yesterday, here: Missed Twitter Questions from Jonathan Schwartz Interview at Web 2.0 Expo.
So, as you'll see on Tim's post, my question (about blogging and Twittering, of course) did get asked, and answered -- and, thanks to Twitter, I didn't even have to go the conference! :-) There were several other good questions that Schwartz answered as well. The hint about what's to come regarding Sun's "network.com" offering is especially interesting. Thanks, Tim, for the great recovery -- you're forgiven!
