Nod to Justin from OTN

Thanks to Justin, editor of Oracle Technology Network (OTN), for his post on our internal Idea Factory. We hope the factory generates good feedback; we know some of the 70,000 people who work here have killer ideas. Now, we’re trying to mine them.

Justin has been building OTN into the largest online community of developers (5.5 million and change). Despite his efforts, Oracle gets a bad rep when it comes to Web 2.0; see Justin’s ‘I Don’t Get It’ post from a few months ago and the frothy debate in the comments.

I know Jeff Nolan’s reading. I hope Dennis Howlett reads too. Use the comments here to tell us what you think. Maybe we need an externally facing Idea Factory too? Would that be New Webby enough to get some kudos?

As a note, I will be using New Web in place of Web 2.0 from now on, unless I forget. That is all.

    I agree it should be opened up to the community, tell us what you are up to, what can the community do to help, what API’s can you create, think google labs, yahoo pipes and more, how could this transfer to Oracle?

    cheers
