Gosling Interview

Business Week has an interview with James Gosling. I like this response.

Q: Many people have tried to take credit for Java's success over the years. At this 10-year anniversary, are there any unsung heroes?

One of the things that has always kind of bugged me is everyone talks about me as the guy who created Java. That was true up until about 8 to 10 years ago. I wrote the first thing. But you look at the engineering teams we have today -- we have many really talented people that nobody ever hears of.
