Hippo Birdies to Jake

Happy Birthday to Jake!

Y’all wouldn’t know it, but Jake calls me up now and again to ask questions about the kernel, or some scripts, or whatever—and I’m always glad to hear from him. I get the chance to catch up on UserLand and on what Jake’s been up to, and that’s always cool.

And so I think to myself: Jake is lucky to work at UserLand. He’s lucky to have found a job that fits him so well and that he does so well.

And then I think: well, UserLand is lucky to have Jake. Jake’s a guy you want on your team.
