When Facebook was a facebook, and Gillibrand was Rutnik

The Dartmouth College Class of '88 has produced some notable, and some not so notable, figures. New York Gov. David Paterson put one more class member in the spotlight this week, when he named Tina Rutnik, er, Kirsten Gillibrand, to be the next New York senator.

Here's how Tina introduced herself to the class in the Class of '88 *real* facebook:

Gillibrand joins a growing list of notable Dartmouth alumni from that class. Here's another face you may know, from Saturday Night Live and various movies:

Rachel Dratch

This class member, on the right, has gone on to become president and CEO of one of the world's most prominent advertising agencies, BBDO New York.

John Osborn

This young man, also on the right, became a prominent writer for the New York Times. He now goes by Jacques:

Jacques Steinberg

Then, there's the not so notable ones. This fellow here just completed this blog entry.

David: Political editor for the Baltimore Sun ain't all that bad. I'm from your Dartmouth class of 1988 as well - others to include on your list:

- John Replogle - CEO Burt's Bees
- Ron Grant - President and COO, AOL

As for me, I'm doing the start-up thing in Bay Area. Your post prompted me to pull out my class of 88 book - see you at reunion.
