    Excellent interview.

    Zef is a great guy who doesn't get enough recognition for the work he's done in the past and the work he's capable of now.

    He's definitely a future programming star.

    I agree, which is why I suggested him after Sandman posted the link to your interview in his post at IPS.

    Zef is a nice guy. :) I remember talking to him over ICQ a few years back and most certainly think that this kid is going to go places. :D

    Nice interview Sandman.

    Im still getting over the fact that Zef was only 16/17 years old when he created YaBB. Yet another good interview. Keep up the good work.

    Very inspiring story of a young guy who wrote code for the bulletin boards in a young age. That is very inspiring. I love programming but my career diverted to different areas and couldn't go deeper into that. It is interesting to see how people work so hard early in their life.

    Zef is mistaken in the above, his project and code is still very much alive and in use in his original forum software, YaBB.
    A couple programmers broke off and developed YaBBSE in PHP, But the originial YaBB Perl forum is now in version Y3 Beta and being developed, celebrating 10 yrs now after Zef released the first version.

    A very nice and detailed interview about a very well known person on the net.

    I hope to interview someone like that to one day.
