Who Is Tim Lindholm? Google’s CEO is Wondering That Too - Digits - WSJ

Another case study in email etiquette
"Oracle is suing Google for allegedly infringing intellectual property related to Oracle’s Java technology with its Android mobile software. In the email, written in 2010, Mr. Lindholm writes that he was asked by Mr. Page and Google co-founder Sergey Brin to explore alternatives to Java for use in Android — but found they all “suck.” He adds, “We need to negotiate a license for Java.”
Google has fought to keep the email out of the trial taking place now in San Francisco, to no avail. During his testimony earlier this week, Mr. Page said he couldn’t recall the email, or providing such directions to Mr. Lindholm, or even for that matter the identity of Mr. Lindholm."
