Very cool and well deserved.

Bryan Cantrill and a team of engineers at Sun Microsystems Inc. have devised 
a way to diagnose misbehaving software quickly and while it's still doing its 
work. While traditional trouble-shooting programs can take several days of 
testing to locate a problem, the new technology, called DTrace, is able to 
track down problems quickly and relatively easily, even if the cause is 
buried deep in a complex computer system.

The DTrace trouble-shooting software from Sun was chosen as the Gold winner 
in The Wall Street Journal's 2006 Technology Innovation Awards contest, the 
second time in three years that a Sun entry has won the top award.
