Silicon Forest hires: Paydici pockets Stearns, Taptu finds Harris

I was going to wait for a third. But I’m antsy, so here you go.
Bryan Stearns has joined Portland-based Paydici as Software Architect. According to ReadWriteWeb’s ReadWriteHire:
Stearns is also currently a Software Architect Contractor at the Public Library of Science and a Principal at The Thomas Eliot Company (a Sole Proprietorship). Previously he was a Software Engineer at Open Source Applications Foundation and a Senior Software Engineer at Microsoft. Earlier in his career he was a Senior Engineer at Apple.
Jason Harris has signed on, part time, as a community manager for Taptu, a UK-based mobile search engine. According to the Taptu blog:
The Taptu team is growing quickly to support our growth as a business; we now officially have a new team member to our US team. You’ll be reading much more from Jason in the near future, as he covers the perspective of a mobile guy in the American market. Join me in welcoming him to the team!
Congrats to both of them on the new gigs!
