Forget the X-Men, SmugMuggers are on the scene

February 23, 2007

SmugMug's Founders

Man, I love the company we’ve built!

We had a bunch of SmugMuggers in from out-of-town this week and, being a fun-loving photography company, we had to get some shots of our employees. Since our Help Desk is manned by Support Heroes, we thought a Super Hero theme would be appropriate. πŸ™‚

I’m blue-and-gold Wolverine, above, with my co-founder and father Chris MacAskill as J’onn J’onnz aka Martian Manhunter. Last night four of us even showed up at the YUI party at Yahoo’s HQ with our faces still on. It was a blast – congrats to YUI on their first year!

Below, you can see the half of the company that was in Silicon Valley this week. Can you name each hero?

Lots more shots, including close-up portraits, in the gallery.

My brother, Ben, as V.
Neat, this got dugg. Go give it some love. πŸ™‚

    Someone who knows their super-heroes!

    You only missed two of them, and one was a trick anyway. Once everyone’s had a chance to guess, I’ll list who each one was. πŸ™‚
