It works on so many levels

Noodle on this one

This is one of my favorite photos that Lex and I have ever been in. Take a second to look and see if you can figure out why it is great:

Our Latte Machine at Work

Give up? Okay, let’s break it down:

1. As you can see, there is a lovely image printed on a cup of Java by the Latte Art Printer.

2. Hey cool! It’s the Java logo.

3. Whoa, wait a minute! It’s James Gosling the father of the Java programming language!

Around lunch time, Mr. Gosling stopped by our New Tech Demo booth at Siggraph ’08 and we had a blast showing off the printer and chatting with him for a while. My personal favorite was listening to him and Lex go back and forth on the nitty gritty technology about how the printer is built; and the stories of past projects he was involved in. It was truly great meeting; such a gracious and supportive man, and we can’t thank him enough for taking the time. Who knows, maybe we will meet him at the next JavaOne conference and … Okay, not going to finish that joke 🙂

Here is James Gosling’s weblog and we are on it!
