So I went to a decent college where I met a lot of smart people, and now I work at a company that attracts a lot of bright people as well. But looking back, some of the sharpest hackers I know I met outside of both of those. Like brad, who was just a friend of a friend.

I met Jeff even before Brad: when I was in high school, and again as a friend of a friend. But he's one of those rare sorts of people who are so good at what they do that I wouldn't have expected to have met him in any of the "normal" (school, work, etc.) places.

So I'm happy to see that he's posted at jeffr_tech and I recommend subscribing, especially if you're interested in operating systems.
