It's a small world

My little sister has moved to the Dominican Republic to kickstart a private school. She ran into a group of partying gringos last night and they mentioned a wealthy new neighbor building a big house a bit down the road: Spencer Kimball. When I think of Spencer Kimball, I think of "GIMP cocreator", but apparently the gringos mentioned him as "the Google guy".

Sometimes I do think of him as "the Orkut guy", since he had a photo on the front page of orkut for a long time. (He's on the upper left.)

Anyway, it was weird to see some ancient history come up again after ten years in a completely different context.
