Riven’s evil post made me think more about the people who lack appreciation/recognition for there contributions to this fantastic community. And so I would like to call out the following individuals:
ChrisM - Started it all, the one thing I regret about my JavaOne visit a few years back was not having the courage to introduce myself. I loved your response and you should totally re-post it here.
princec - Your tireless struggle to make a career out of this has been inspiring to us all.
MarkusPersson - Where did you go?
KevGlass - When you get as rich as Markus I’m pretty sure you’ll still visit.
Appel - Turned Java4K into the phenomenon that it is.
Riven - You gloriously evil bastard.
Anyone I’ve missed?
