My close call with greatness

I was thiiiiiis close to greatness last night. The workshop had ended and a bunch of us were getting ready to go to Chinatown to get dinner. Goeff Knauth (instructor at Lycoming College in PA and one of the attendees) asks, "shall I call Richard Stallman and invite him to dinner?"

Can someone really turn down an invitation like that?

A phone call was made; message left; and shortly returned. Richard would love to join us, but is currently in France and can't make it in time.

Bummer. But how cool would that have been?
