Tim Bray Interview

I found an old interview with Tim Bray, Director of Web Technologies at Sun. He has some comments on how Sun may view the Ruby and Rails movement:

"Sun is a big company and I think that to a certain extent Rails probably is seen as falling into the LAMP basket" ... "My opinion is that we are vendors of computer systems and a lot of people are writing very cool code based on those kind of technologies, so we ought to be falling over ourselves to sell computers and to run them on, even though it's not Java."

Towards the end of the interview there are some interesting comments on static vs. dynamic typing, the Atom standard, and TDD.
