Dalibor joining Sun (Yippee!)

I just saw the link in Simon's blog saying that it was now official, Dalibor Topic will be joining Sun as our Java F/OSS Ambassador.  


Nis may by Nice, but I'm Hamburg bound!

Dalibor has been a tireless champion for Free Java and has been instrumental in bringing several Java technology-oriented free software projects together such as GNU Classpath, Kaffe and GNU Compiler for Java.   Over the years, Dalibor has gone from Sun critic to supporter and, as of last JavaOne, he has been a member of the OpenJDK interim governance board

In the role of Java F/OSS Ambassador, Dalibor will taking over where the magnificent M. Tom Marble left off.

Listen to What the Man Said 

If you want to get a sense for Dalibor and his thinking, check out this podcast I did with him last Fall at Sun's internal FOSS Summit.

Welcome Dalibor and I look forward to working with you!

Pau for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
