I am responsible for the meeting of Seth and Leonard…
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
I am responsible for the meeting of Seth and Leonard (at some party of mine a while back), and Seth is responsible for Leonard meeting me.
One day three or so years ago, I watched Dan and Seth play pool in the ground floor lounge in Freeborn Hall, Unit One at Cal. Seth was explaining something about free software or Windows Refund Day. At one point he asked if we ever read Slashdot. And we said, "What's that?" Or probably Dan did, anyway.
And so we started reading Slashdot, and Slashdot begat a link to Segfault, and Segfault had lots of humorous writings by Leonard and begat a link to Leonard's site, and I started reading his stuff long before I ever really had a chance to meet him, but I jumped at the chance when it did come.
Dan might not feel the same.
