What is everyone up to these days? (in life)

Joined these forums when I was 11. Now I'm 23. Life is crazy. My old username used to be "mugboy" if you don't remember.

I still remember a lot of names here that have posted in the past year, randomly. What are you up to these days, professionally?

EDIT: Realized I should probably answer my own question for you.

* Live in San Francisco now
* Graduated with a degree in computer science from University of Washington
* Made an open source project that is used at quite a few companies and growing fast (vagrantup.com)
* Started a company behind that project a month ago
* Started a small company in college and sold it (quite a bit of money but not millions)
* Writing a book for O'Reilly (on Vagrant)
* Speaker at various conferences (OSCON, VelocityConf, RubyConf, FOSDEM, etc etc).
* Friends with Lucas (a member of this forum I met back when I was 12) now in real life, he introduced me to the person who gave me my first job in SF.

Funny that all this began with toying with pet sites.
