Oracle lays off Java Evangelists – what’s going on?

Not sure what’s going on over at Oracle, but news on Twitter is that they just laid off (what sounds like) their entire Java Evangelist team:

Other than this article on InfoWorld there’s not much else to go on, but from various tweets from some of those involved it seems to involve Simon Ritter, Cameron Purdy, Jim Weaver and others too. That’s a lot of top Java talent. Would love to hear what’s going on at Oracle right now. Seems odd timing as well, 1 month before JavaOne?
