Java inventor James Gosling encounters Tardis, joins Google

After leaving Oracle in a huff over the way it was treating his kid, Java inventor James Gosling has shifted to Google apparently after a few adventures in a Tardis.

Gosling is on record as being no big fan of Google. He once famously said that Google’s Android operating system needed a few adults in charge to be successful.

However writing in his bog, Gosling appears to have met Dr Who, who suggested that he joins Google of all places.

He said that there had been some odd twists in the road over the past year, and he had encountered “a Tardis” along the way.

It seems after a stint as the Doctor’s companion he has found himself starting at Google today.

One of the toughest things about life is making choices. He “had a hard time saying ‘no’ to a bunch of other excellent possibilities.”   Yeah – we understand the pay in Meglos is pretty good.

Nevertheless, settling for 21st century Earth, it seems that Gosling has decided that Google is the best place.

Google should be happy. One of Gosling’s patents is being used by Oracle in its patent infringement suit against Google over the Dalek Java machine.

Gosling doesn’t seem to have a title or mission yet and does not know what his Google bosses want from him.

“I expect it’ll be a bit of everything, seasoned with a large dose of grumpy curmudgeon,” he said.
