James Levin kinda looks like Joel :-)

Anyone else agree? Check out Joel's picture on http://joel.spolsky.com .

Wasn't that one of the job requirements :)
"Must resemble Joel Spolsky"

That would be discrimination against all non Joel-Spolsky-looking applicants.

This is one of those super-advanced management tricks Joel never shares.  He gets James Levin to quietly work on an "important project" at his desk and then goes off for a movie.

Also, he can canvass peoples' honest opinions by switching clothes with the intern and gossiping with coworkers.

He's was probably brainwashing the poor guy with his "special" flashbulb, since the benefits of an army of Joel Spolskies is not lost on Joel.

How can Joel is so plump now when he said he doesn't like eating meat?

Last I checked donuts were not meat. <g>

Or doughnuts for the literates among you.

I guess the army of Joel clones is starting to take shape. How much longer before Fogcreek drives Microsoft into bankruptcy?

Do-nuts? I said no ethnic foods!

I didn't even think of the looking like Joel aspect. I thought he was hired because he was cute. ;)

And the horse you rode in on

Why Joel asks him to write ASP to PHP compiler?
I thought Fogcreek is MS oriented shop.

Wasn't there some research that suggested that we choose to hang out with/marry/whatever with people who resemble us and/or members of our family? Hmm. Or should that be "families"? Oh well.

Dang!  Joel was like 120 lbs. in that picture!

Time for another cross-country bike trek?

The meat makes you fat, vegetarianism makes you skinny thing is ridiculous.  What do you think is going to happen to you once you replace all that protein with a lot of carbs (pasta, potatoes, ...)?  You've got to plan very carefully for a vegetarian diet or else you'll blimp up.

been there, done that

Ooh! Ooh! It's going to be a low fat vs. low carbs argument! How exciting! :)

no, it's an "eating a lot of potato chips will make you fat" arguement.  You're confusing my statement with your own personal hangups. ;)

I'm trying to envision the fear associated with a marauding army of Spolskys being thrown out of a plane.  At least the live-stock is safe.

Now an interesting question would be if James was a JOS regular, and if so what is his handle ;-).

Just me (Sir to you)
Thursday, July 31, 2003

It would be "Bella".

Superchimp, that was a really low blow! Bella, indeed-you think Joel would hire someone that autistic? Please.
