    JavaZone 2013: Javapocalypse

    Not something great, but a 3 minutes of a break from coding....More or less...

    And a more serious video, with no relation to the first link.
    Project Loon: The Technology <-- I am wondering whether the weather will be a devastating problem to this or not ;p (Well, they will be on the stratosphere they say, so things are going to be more predictable there I guess )

    O_o

    What? No.

    This short film heralds a dystopian prophecy; they are telling us what may be if we aren't all careful.

    They are trying to save Java.

    I like the java film, is funny, but not sure whther its pro or anti java! overall it seems pro, world ends if java is off, love the 'who put that other button there for?' - And the hello world bit
