Congrats Parakey

Maybe this becomes one of those famous old school computer photos, with everyone in it getting all rich and famous. Let’s hope so, because I’m in there :-) (eh, I'm already "rich" and "famous").

I have another photo that’s more representative of those involved in Firefox because there was quite a number of people involved in making it happen.Anyway, that’s Blake (looking at the Rock) and Joe standing next to him. They just sold their company Parakey to Facebook. Very cool. I forgot to ask for their autograph. eh, I’ll take a Facebook t-shirt (which will end up going to Dad) and a free lunch.

That’s Ben all the way to the right and he’s at Google now. dbaron, extraordinaire, fixing something I’m sure in front of his laptop.

I’m there on my computer with cbeard and we’re finalizing the press release announcing Firefox 1.0. I’m about to publish it (after about the umpteenth cbeard edit).

And then Asa actually cropped this image and just shows Jay’s hat because he’s drinking a margarita or something that brendan probably made for him.

That was fun…Ok, back in the garage.

*Update*. I take stuff down all the time. Sorry Blake.

  1. There were a lot of "co-founders" to Firefox. I'll tell the story one day of how it really went down. Let's just say that a stand-alone browser was inevitable and far too many people worked to make it happen.
