I just noticed this tweet from our HR queen, Brittany:

and here’s the photo she linked to, featuring Tobi, our CEO, being a 1337 H4X0R (and an agile one, too!):

As much as I’d like to do pair programming with Tobi, I’m afraid I’d be completely outclassed by him. What with all the great coders in this office, I’m certain that I’m the dumbest guy in the room (which is nowhere as bad as it sounds).

For years I ran and played with Typo, a RoR blog engine that @tobi wrote in an hour in a Starbucks here in Ottawa. I’ve since moved to tumblr, but tobi’s code was a really good primer on RoR at the time.
