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. 🙂
