Summary
This article contains a collection of short audio recordings made at JavaPolis on Thursday, December 14, 2006. Each recording captures one person's notion of an idea that is important for developers to think about.

This past Thursday, I roamed around JavaPolis conference in Antwerp, Belgium with a microphone. I spoke with several people about the 'one thing they would like the world to know.' My goal was to give you a feel for the latest developments in the Java space and to gather new and interesting ideas about development for you to ponder.

In this second installment, I've collected several short audio clips for you to listen to. If something strikes a chord with you, whether harmonic or dissonant, we encourage you to post in the discussion forum.
