will the real zak greant please stand up?

I was a little freaked to discover my good friend Zak Greant (formerly of MySQL, now working for eZ systems) has not one but two dopplegangers.  (Does that make them triplegangers?)  I was honored to photograph them together.

You can see the photo on FlickrZak is in the middle, Dan Scott on the left, and Kees on the right.  Apparently you must look like this if you would like to give a talk at next year’s OSCON.


  1. Kees:

    Great! Thanks for posting the photo. :) I’m going to have to prepare “I’m not Zak” shirts for the next OSCON. :)

  3. Zak Greant:
