Yes, I've got a real job again

There have been a few reports out about me moving from the labs to the sun tools organization. Yes, it's true. It's been about a week now. It's kinda wierd having a "real job" again. But very cool. Now I'm not just kibbitzing on the side in the Sun Tools strategy, I'm deep in it. One piece I'm very interested in is taking some of the pieces of the Jackpot project and using them in products. Jackpot has been a lot of fun, but it's gone beyond being a science project: the underlying sematic modeling techniques have proven to work very well. Now I get to work on turning the toys into real tools. And there is so much to do: from rapid application development to development for embedded systems, there's a lot of territory out there.
