Python personalities Tim Bray, Ted Leung, and Frank Wierzbiki, in their own words...

Ted Leung, XML architect and author, Apache Software Foundation member, and longtime Python developer, as well as Frank Wierzbicki, lead implementer of the Jython project (Python on the JVM), recently became Sun employees. Here's why they made the move, in their words.

In an interview with Linux.com, Tim Bray attributes his survival in the industry to "Adult Attention Deficit Disorder. I've got the attention span of a mosquito. I get bored with things quickly, and I want to see what comes next." Recently, his advocacy "helped commit Sun to really open up their hardware to the [Python] project. And then we just a couple of weeks [later] hired two Python people."
