Jimmy Zhang (XimpleWare),
Brian Potarelli (Inversoft)
Mark Swanson mark@ScheduleWorld.com.

I've always liked Castells in part because they are build by a large group and everybody has a role, from very strong people at the bottom to very light boys - and girls - at the top. Even the crowd helps stabilize the castle.
A great image for community building, which is why I used them when I was the lead for the JSP specs.
