The NurflugelBlog is a place where I can vent my spleen about pretty much anything that crosses my mind. Politics, religion, those annoying little indignities we all have to put up with - I have plenty to say about them.

Speaker collapses onstage at JavaOne!

No shit, I was attending a session called "Service-Oriented
Architecture and Java", and about five minutes before Q&A, one of the
speakers collapsed onstage!

The other speaker said he'd collapsed, and we all thought they were

Then he didn't get up.

Then they kicked us out.

We don't know if this was the Norovirus or if he'd partied too hard
the night before, but it's pretty scary, nonetheless.

I was at that session as well...he mentioned that he was feeling "really sick" while he was doing the Flex demo.

Has anyone heard how he's doing?

Norovirus isn't usually lethal unless the victim is already very weak - they'll just wish they were dead.

He'll recover.
