Java innovator James Gosling, who left the employ of new Java steward Oracle shortly after its merger with Sun last year, has gone to work for Google, the first company Oracle sued for Java patent infringement.
In a blog entry, Gosling wrote:

Through some odd twists in the road over the past year, and a tardis encountered along the way, I find myself starting employment at Google today.

He contineud:

One of the toughest things about life is making choices. I had a hard time saying “no” to a bunch of other excellent possibilities.

In closing, Gosling admitted he was something of, er, a grump.

I don’t know what I’ll be working on. I expect it’ll be a bit of everything, seasoned with a large dose of grumpy curmudgeon.
