Catching Some (J)Z’s

I’m sure someone has made this observation before, but I’ve always been intrigued that three well-known personalities of the internet age share the same first and last initials, JZ:

Jeremy Zawodny|http://jeremy.zawodny.com/, a Yahoo! employee since December of 1999. He is currently a MySQL guru on Yahoo!’s platform engineering team. Jamie Zawinski|http://www.jwz.org/, one of the most important contributors to Mozilla and Netscape, and currently proprietor of the DNA Lounge|http://www.dnalounge.com/ in San Francisco. Jeffrey Zeldman|http://www.zeldman.com/, web standards guru and web designer extraordinaire. Founded Happy Cog Studios|http://www.happycog.com/. I received one of his books as a Christmas gift.

I wonder what connections these guys have, if any? I’ve only found one page|http://simon.incutio.com/archive/2003/05/20/defeatingIE5 so far that has all three names on it. If the three JZ’s got together in one room, would the Internet implode? Perhaps they have been together in one room – anyone know? Am I missing any JZ’s? Will any of the JZ’s actually find this post? We shall see. 🙂
