I met with Niklas Gustafsson this afternoon. Niklas is an architect on my team that focuses on some future technologies we're working on. The main area of focus for him is creating new and innovative ways in the langauge and in the runtime to do distributed programming. This involves new concepts around concurrency, application and component distribution, message handling, etc. Think the VB model for Indigo. We are looking for a couple people to work on this effort. As soon as I can figure out how to find links to the job postings I'll post them here :).
