Punkie vs. The Famous

Anyone heard of Eric Raymond? You tech geeks might have heard of him. Wrote "The Art of Unix Programming" and "The Cathedral and the Bazaar." I will probably be sharing panel space with him at Balticon! Now I'm scared I'll have nothing intelligent to add, or say something mind-numbingly stupid and ameteurish that causes Eric to up and leave in disgust. :)

Eric: Blah blah blah IQ of 204
Punk: Duuuuhhh...
Eric: [Something so clearly mind-blowing, it literally changes people's religion on the spot]
Punk: In second grade, I read 3 books in one month!
Eric: [Explains how to rewire some common household object to make your own pirate radio]
Punk: I can sharpen crayons!
Eric: [Wonders aloud why Punkie's on a panel with him, but said in such a way, Punkie thinks it's a dissection of a C++ program]
Punk: I grep'd a logfile once...

Still... kick ASS!
