Almost-Sir James Gosling

Scanning my news feeds just now I spotted the fact that James Gosling has been named an Officer of the Order of Canada. Tim Bray's view as a fellow Canadian is that this is the first appointment of a programmer to the Order, and a welcome change from honouring people famous just for being famous. James is one of the nicest geeks I know on the planet and I am delighted that he's been honoured with Canada's equivalent of a knighthood. Congratulations, James!
