Best Company Theme *Ever*

Friday, May 2, 2008 4:49 PM

I forgot to blog about this...

When I was in Seattle for the MVP summit, we had lunch with some locals and Joe (I think it was Joe?) from the Mono team at Novell.

One of the locals was Ben Joldersma. We introduced each other, shook hands, and then he gave me his business card.

Skull Squadron

His company was named Skull Squadron! The discussion then followed...

Me - "That's not a Robotech reference by chance is it?"

Ben - "Well yes it is!"

Me - "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU CONVERTED MYRIA YOU MICRONIAN SCUM!" (as I leap at him in the hotel lobby with a lamp from a nearby table).

Ok, no I didn't...we actually went and ate some great Thai food.

But I digress...

I checked out their website later that day, and saw what I can only describe as the coolest bio page for a company I've ever seen. (although maybe Joe Wright should have checked the backstory to Ben Dixon before donning the yellow colors ;) ).

Wondering if these flyboys are serious about their craft? Check out their portfolio page for proof that they're serious about web applications and web design.

LOL...I know they weren't part of Novell...I wrote the sentence badly:

Should have been

There...better.

I can't believe how much Joe looks like Rick Hunter. That's insane. 5/3/2008 2:51 AM | Justice~!
