Yesterday at JavaOne I had the chance to talk with Sun’s James Gosling who is, as Wikipedia puts it “best known as the father of the Java programming language.”

While we may have recorded this episode at JavaOne 2008, we spent most of our time talking about more general programming and Java concerns: Scala and functional languages, the freak-out (or lack thereof?) around multi-core programming, breaking around the safe sandbox of the VM to take advantage of operating system features and other technologies, and other topics, like who came up with those epigraphs in the Java Language Specification.

Disclaimer: Sun is a client and paid my way to JavaOne.
