James Gosling Makes a Move

I just read a post about James Gosling quitting Google corporation. He has moved on to work at Liquid Robotics. What a name for a company. The guys is going to be chief architect there. This is surprising. I thought Google would have been keeping him happy and well paid. Perhaps sometimes you need to make a change, or work for the little guy.

In the rare instance that you do not know, James Gosling is the inventor of the Java programming language. He did that back when he worked for Sun Microsystems (which has since been acquired by Oracle). Poor Google. Gosling only lasted 6 months there. Is there more to this story?
