Circa 1996

Office drawers are like attics.  The other day I opened one and found a stack of pictures.   This was the Java Client team in late 1996.

Left to Right: Jim Graham, Rick Levenson, Tim Prinzing, Georges Saab, Jonni Kanerva, Jeannette Hung, Tom Ball, Jeff Dinkins, Amy Fowler.  
 

An email later and we all gathered for lunch at Hobees in Sunnyvale:

A little more sun in the eyes and a few grey hairs.  The front row still works on the jdk!

A couple others who were there back in the day came along too.

    What wonderful pictures!

    But I must ask this, Amy. What Java method have you used to stop ageing?

  2. Stuart Marks says:

    One should ask Jeff how he’s stopped aging! He looks identical in the second picture!! And check out Georges in that first picture too….

    I can finally match the faces with the names I saw in JDK source code. People in the first two pictures are in the exact same order. How did you folks manage to do it after so many years? Is it intentional?
