Steve Wood, Bob Wallace, Jim Lane, Bob O'Rear, Bob Greenberg, Marc McDonald, Gordon Letwin, Paul Allen, Bill Gates, Andrea Lewis, Marla Wood and Paul Allen.

Technically good ol' Miriam should have been in the photo but she was unable to make it to the office due to bad weather.

I may or may not know at least one person in that photo ;)
