These aren't all of my friends. These are just the ones that have a website, and that I can remember what that website is. These are in the order of which I chose to list them. Anything implied by this ordering is completely fabricated by whatever imagination you employ.
Mike and I met when we worked doing Data Entry work at Taxback Ltd.. The story is long, but basically consists of us making fun of each other, and pushing each other to re-think the assumptions. It's worked well and we've recently started a great company together along with a few other friends who do really cool things.
Tabo is a father, a hacker, blogger, and a security expert. Not necessarily in that order.
Dan and I met at Etsy Inc., where we worked toegether for nearly a year. A self described "Dynamic Language Lumberjack" he knows any codes things fluently in many languagues and is almost always the guy I turn to to quickly prototype python modules in C. He also shares my general distaste for all things XML.
Based in San Francisco, Zak is a me-lookalike and is a great programmer and all around interesting guy. Rumour has it that he's a security expert too.
Jay is a great guy and a good manager. He doesn't blog much.
