Unfortunately, I’ve yet to have the opportunity to meet Rory in person, although he was one of the brave souls who actually staid to listen to me speak at the Applied XML Dev Con this year.  I’m hoping to catch up with him if I ever make it to one of the Portland Nerd dinners.  That desire was fueled by the fact that, like Don, I think his take on the PDC is one of the funniest things I have every read.  I mean ever.  In my life.  Really. 

Running a close second is his jubilation at being mentioned on Don Box’s blog.  Luckily I was already sitting down when I read it. :-)
