Bad Idea: A Keynote at SOA / Cloud Symposium 2010 in Berlin as Skype Call ?!

In October 2010, I was at the IT conference „SOA / Cloud Symposium 2010“. I really liked the conference as I stated in another blog entry (http://www.kai-waehner.de/blog/2010/10/06/soa-cloud-symposium-2010-in-berlin/). But one concern really upset me…

What is a good keynote?

I really enjoyed the very good keynote of Christian Klezl (Vice President and Cloud Leader  of IBM Northeast Europe). This keynote contained everything I expect from a keynote: Good slides, good body language, interesting information, and a structured presentation which never becomes boring. Good job!

SOA / Cloud Certification of „soaschool.com“ (SOACP) by Thomas Erl or Sun / Oracle Java Enterprise (JEE) Certification?

Which one should I do?

What IT certification should I do next? This is what I wondered within the last weeks, after I passed the SCJP 6 successfully some months ago. I surfed the internet a lot to find information about possible IT certifications.
