The Class of ‘06

Two years ago…

  • I was attending a class (no, seriously) called “Women & Islam”.
  • Aaron Wall was selling 2 ebooks a day and making ends meet.
  • Rand Fishkin was notable for his SOCEngine directory.
  • Rich McIver was studying for the LSAT.
  • Brian Clark was an assistant manager at Burger King (well, something like that ;-) )
  • Neil Patel was going through puberty.
  • Chris Pearson was selling cell phones.

I love the Internet.

P.S. I am aware that there were many more in the Class of ‘06 but I didn’t know everyone’s former job so I couldn’t list you… please fill us in in the comments!

two years ago i was attending a class called “courtship & marriage.” not as unique as “women & islam” but sort of funny all the same.

If it was two years ago, wouldn’t that be the Class of ‘05?

Saying hello from I couldn’t find contact info, please shoot me an email.

And 2 years ago I was doing the same things, although using different methods, in a smaller office and driving a car I’ve since totaled at the Pocono Raceway.
