It’s times like these that I wish someone just told the reporter that PHP is a programming language for web development that has a larger marketshare than Java J2EE and Microsoft dotNet combined:
[Web 2.0 technologies] also mean applications can be built much more quickly, says Mr Boloker. He is a big fan of PHP, an open-source scripting language which makes building mashups even easier. Originating in Greenland, PHP is now managed by an Israeli company called Zend.

I didn’t realize that Rasmus wasn’t in Canada when he wrote PHP and that Cupertino is now in Israel.
Good to know.
Oh yeah, it’s nice that they’re allowed to use Apple Macintoshes in IBM, I didn’t know they’re so generous. Will they be taking his away with the Intel switch?
Other than that hilarity, thank you Dave Boloker for plugging PHP. Now I can go around saying that the former chief of Java Technologies at IBM Software Group is a “big fan of PHP.”
