Charles Nutter, who presented the JRuby demo last night at MinneDemo, has been hired by Sun along with his co-developer, Thomas Enebo. He blogs about it here. (Mr. Enebo covers it here and Tim Bray, who helped with the hire on the Sun end, covers it here.)
Congratulations from a fellow Minnesotan. Sounds like a dream job to get paid for what you love doing already.
