SYS-CON Media publisher/editor Jeremy Geelan, a fine chap who interviewed The Father of Java just the other day, contacted me about re-publishing Gosling Didn’t Get The Memo on sys-con.com. This is the same site that published Gosling’s original remarks.
It took me about five seconds to agree, within an hour we were sharing the front page with the original Gosling quote, and we’ve just now broken into the top three most heavily read articles on the site for the day. The republished post is here and is pretty much an exact copy (comments and all).
So yea, I’m stoked.
I should also mention that there was likely some back-channel prodding that helped lead to this. Adaptive Path’s Jesse James Garrett was panelist at the SYS-CON hosted Real-World AJAX event earlier this week in New York (see: Geelan interviews Jesse). From what I can gather, Jesse played no small part in getting the article picked up.
Huge thanks to both Jesse and Jeremy from lesscode.org.
