...filled with a bunch of nutcases

Just read this interview with James Gosling. On the front page of the SMH no less.

My favourite quote from the article is this:


At 52, Mr Gosling is a researcher at Sun Microsystems where his main interest is software development tools. "The reason why I stay is it's filled with a bunch of nutcases. Sun is a (relatively) small organisation, so there is a culture of tolerating craziness. It is open and understanding to risk; to an idea that might not be what people are expecting."

Ain't that the truth!

I've often said (to myself, at least!) that I work with some scarysmart people here at Sun, and it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who thinks that we're more than a little wacky.
