Northern Voice 2006 conference
Robert Scoble, Microsoft employee, technical evangelist and blogger extraordinaire. We talked 'Drupal' with him which I'm sure he will be pitching to Bill Gates. ;-)
Tim Bray, Sun Microsystems employee, W3C member and co-inventor of XML. Tim made Sun Microsystems donate a Sun Fire V20z server to the Drupal project. I finally got to say "thank you" in person.
