Interview with James Gosling

C|Net: “Take a look at Sun Microsystems’ recently relaunched Java developer Web site, and you’ll see something new: a picture of James Gosling.

Despite being one of the primary inventors of the popular development language, Gosling spent the last couple years detached from daily development of Java within Sun. The well-known software engineer took a “technologist’s vacation” and started his own research project, called “Jackpot,” looking at ways to make programming easier.

Now, Gosling can don the “Java guru” hat again.”
