VMworld 2008: Seperated At Birth? Dr Evil and Richard Garsthagen

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Well, I’m in Vegas for this years VMworld. I’m staying at the Venetian, which my friends from Italy would love. There’s a replica of St Marks from Venice outside! I watched 4 movies during the flight (3 inflight running from a Linux system that kept on rebooting!) and one on my laptop. So I watched again the Mike Myers movie – “Austin Powers: The Spy who shagged me” and then this morning after breakfast whilst I was unwinding I saw the tail end of “Austin Powers: Gold Member”. I was humourously struck at how similiar Dr Evil looks to VMware’s Richard Garsthagen – who I have bumped into twice since arriving.

If you don’t know Richard – he was VMware’s first instructor in EMEA, then became EMEA Technical Marketing Manager, worked on some VDI and is/was the guy behind VMware’s TSX in Europe. He also runs a very good blog called run-virtual.com. Check out the images below – and see if you can work out which is which! Anyway, if Richard is Dr Evil, that must make Eric Sloof “Gold Member”, and me as “Austin Powers”, I’ve got the “British Teeth” for it I can tell you!
