Railsconf Celebrity Sightings

On the way back to my hotel room for the dinner break I shared an elevator ride with Geoffrey Grosenbach (topfunky) of the Ruby on Rails Podcast and perhaps more popular PeepCode screencasts. He wasn't hard to miss with his shirt and blinged-out messenger bag both adorned with the PeepCode logo, and there was no mistaking that signature voice.

At the keynote I noticed the guy sitting next to me was playing NetHack on his laptop with the account name "rbates" and I asked if he happened to be Ryan Bates of the phenomenal Railscasts screencasts. He was.

Great meeting you at RailsConf, Ted! It's interesting how various people spotted me. Some by my voice, others by the shirt, but yours was by far the coolest - NetHack username! :)
