Kudos to Jacob Hookom

A number of years ago while I was still in college.. one of my cool professors was raving about some guy who managed to connect to his cell phone from his home machine in some very sneaky and cool way.. So, my professor's comment was something like "Well, some people might say, who the hell cares about somebody connecting to a cell phone... But damn, it makes me sleep well at night when I know this kind of people are out there.. "...

So, the connection to JHook... He's the lead of the Facelets project.. and he is involved with the JSF spec committee.. He's coming up with these great ideas about web applications, components, JSF, Ajax + JSF... stuff like that.. Reading his blog is just a pleasure.. and it constantly makes me think "Thank god people like him are out there..."...
