I Feel Like An Idiot

june 14, 2006

I was in the office at home looking for my Programming PHP book.  When I found it, I went looking for the section that I needed to read real quick.  When I was done, I looked on the front cover and noticed a name...Rasmus Lerdorf.  I had seen that name before, but I couldn't put my finger on where.  Then I realized that I have seen that name on the PHP API code that is distributed on Yahoo! Developer Network!  I have also seen the name on the in-house mailing lists that I subscribe to!  Duh!  I work at the same company as this guy.  And still not making the connection, I just went on Wikipedia and found that this was the guy who wrote the first version of PHP.  Yeesh, I feel like an idiot.
