There are two languages that make web pages work - HTML and JavaScript. While attending the O'Reilly Fluent Conference1, I had the pleasure of meeting Brendan Eich2. He's the creator of JavaScript.

Unfortunately, I was experimenting with the settings on my camera and borked this shot a little. Alas… such is life.

I also met Ward Cunningham3. AKA the guy who created the first wiki, the forerunning of Wikipedia.

I feel smarter just for being in their proximity.
