So long John

In case you haven't heard, John Lam is leaving ObjectSharp (and Toronto) for Microsoft (and Redmond) in January of next year. John will be taking his passion and expertise for Ruby and Dynamic Languages and helping out the CLR team buff up its support in that area as a Program Manager. As you may know, John has spent most of his time recently at ObjectSharp on the RubyCLR Open Source project. We'll be figuring out what to do with that over the next few months when John makes the transition to Microsoft. Check out John's blog if you're interested in stepping up to the plate to help out.

On a personal note, I'm sorry to see John leave, but you have to follow your heart and your passion so I wish him the best of luck in his new role. I'll be keeping very close eye on his kool-aid drinking, pill popping, MS assimilation process and can hardly wait to jab him as soon as he starts adding “super” in front his emotions :)

Good luck John.
