There are others out there that share my name. One of the more notable ones is this guy. Amusingly, I encountered him when Googling my name and found his resume on his website. At the time, we had very similar skills, and it was somewhat eerie. But, he was also on the other side of the planet. Years later, we ended up encountering each other on Facebook and friended each other for the amusement factor. I also bought one of his books to put on the table in my office for amusement. I’m sure it’s a good read, but I’ll admit I’ve never had the free time to sit down and read it. But, regardless, the point of this paragraph is to point out that I’m not him, and he’s not me. Our career trajectories have taken very different directions since those early days in technology, so it shouldn’t be hard to tell us apart anymore.
