Sir James Gosling :-)

Our very own James Gosling, inventor of Java has been has been named an officer of the Order of Canada! I wonder if that means we have to call him Sir now? Well not according to Simon Phipps' Almost Sir James Gosling... More info on this CBC article, which published a photo where jag seems to be wearing a T-shirt with the Hunter S. Thompson quote: When the going gets weird... ... the weird turn pro. (which this video would tend to confirm.)

Congratulations!

Tim Bray, a fellow Canadian, writes how much he appreciates the fact that engineers are finally getting this level of recognition. I completely agree.
