The training ground of a remarkable crew in Washington's tech policy circles was the office of Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), former chairman of the House Telecommuncations Subcommittee.

I wrote today about Colin Crowell, who has been Markey's wingman for years and has gone off to advise FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. He's about to leave for the private sector.

But did you know of the following Markey office alumni?

    • Larry Irving, vice president of global government affairs for Hewlett-Packard, who also served as assistant secretary of commerce.
    • Gerry Salemme, partner of Eagle River venture capital firm and head of government relations for Clearwire.
    • Larry Sidman, former president of the Association of Public Television Stations.
    • Gerry Waldron, partner at Covington & Burling.
    • Michael Balmoris, spokesman for AT&T
    • Sara Morris, congressional liaison for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration
      • Jessica Schafer, press secretary for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration
      • Kevin Joseph, former counsel to the Senate Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee and now head of the Joseph Group
      • Brian O’Shaughnessy, head of communications for Skype and previously with Google
      • Jonah Seiger, a co-founder of the Center for Democracy and Technology and head of Connections Media consulting
      • William Minor, partner at DLA Partner
      • Ron Klain, chief of staff of Vice President Joe Biden
      • David Moulton, former chief of staff who now works at the Wilderness Society.

    Who else?
