Ethan Galstad: Software Model?

Ethan Galstad

I just about laughed myself out of my chair this morning. I visited, only to be proven wrong on a comment I made here. When lo and behold…who do I see? I see Ethan’s handsome visage staring longingly back out me! WHOA! I did a double take. I then proceeded to LMFAO. The advertisement in question is to the right. I guess Ethan is now a software model! I always told him he was the most handsome open source programmer I’ve ever met. I guess this was a Splunk ad. Ethan, will you do ads for MindTouch? Please?

Ethan is awesome. When I lived in MN he and I lectured on open source at the University and we also made an ill-fated attempt to get an open source community lab off the ground. I should mention PeteE was also instrumental in our failed attempt. πŸ™‚ In our defense, we only had about a year before I bailed for warmer climes.

I still stand by my claim that PeteE is an open source developer poster child and I have photographic evidence of it here.

  1. Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn’t mean that we too can’t not die in a freak gasoline fight accident…

  2. Ha! Yes, Aaron, I would definitely be willing to pose for a Mindtouch photo shoot. Mabye what the OSS movement really needs is a “Revolution OS” meets “Zoolander” flick. πŸ™‚

    And Will… If you wanted to be done with me, all you have to do is take me off your cell speed dial. πŸ™‚

  3. I agree! However, while Ethan is one sexy man I do wish he’d stop calling me. Ethan when it’s over, it’s over. I know its hard, but you need to learn how to move on. This man crush is not healthy, and I think Mary is loosing her patience πŸ˜‰

    In all seriousness, congratulations and tell Mary I said hi.
