|After finishing my Ph.D. in 1990, I
came to California to found Z-Code Software with
Dan Heller. I've been doing Z-stuff ever since; look at my resume. Dan and I
are the middle two in this picture, taken
while Z-Code was still operating out of Dan's living room.
I hope to create a history of Z-Code page when I have a chance to
scan a few more old pictures.
After almost 6 years of Z-Coding, I found myself operating out of a
living room again. This time the Z was for Zanshin. To know where you are, know where you will be.
Zanshin is now doing business as iPost, an email
|We have an amazing 10-year-old son
named Benjamin, and his little
brother Justin. These pictures
are pretty long ago, he's six now.
Benjamin was the unofficial Z-Code mascot almost from the time he was
born. Until he started school, he spent almost as much time in the
office as I did. His first steps were witnessed by the Z-Code sales
staff as he tottered past a conference room door one day.
Who knows what adventures may lie in store for Justin?

|My great uncle Jack Schaefer wrote several famous Western novels. Probably the
best-known of them is Shane, which became the classic film starring Alan
Ladd and Jack Palance. (Clint Eastwood's Pale Rider was a Shane remake.)
Oberlin College maintains a special collection of Uncle Jack's works;
you can get the complete list from their online card catalog.
