Has Anyone Met Eric S. Raymond?!


Hello! Well, I came across Eric S. Raymonds homepage (tuxedo.org--follow the links), and was wondering if anyone has saw Eric in person. You know who Eric is, right? The hacker. I would like to know if anyone has met him. Sounds like a cool guy!

Uh huh...

I can understand why you would say that, though. It is kind of a dumb question, but this is a small world! :-) Someone has probably saw him.

you can't toss up a soft ball like that and expect no one to try to hit it over the fence. it's just too tempting.
