I worked at Simutronics fresh out of high school. (They made GemStone.) I was surprised to see this pop up.

It was a cool group of devs. There was one person in particular, Andy Finkenstadt, who patiently taught me a great deal. Oh yes, and Bryan Cool had the coolest name of all. (He was also a master graphics programmer.)

I met my wife while working there (she lived down the street, and we somehow discovered that fact from a random AOL conversation) so in a roundabout way I fell in love via the GemStone ecosystem, I suppose.
