These are great...I had to collect them in one place for my own personal posterity.  Tony is a very cool guy.

  • (responding to a situation that Tony thought was unlikely to occur): "...there's also a finite and infinitesimal chance that due to quantum tunneling we could all fall straight through this floor."
  • "Does a one-legged duck swim in circles?" (as another way to say "Is the sky blue?")
  • "Drinking is like quantum theory - you can either know how many drinks you had, or what you drank, but not both."
  • To Mike Kass (and countless others in the past, I'm sure): "Mike, everyone has something to bring to this meeting--you should bring silence
  • "A gunshot wound is nature's way of telling you that your camouflage isnÂ’t working”

Next talk is David Ing from Meridian Project Systems...it's called "SOAP: It wasn't Simple, we didn't Access Objects, and it's not a Protocol."

David Ing is an English fellow.  He's admittedly not a professional presenter, but I tell ya, he's getting at least +5 Charisma and +2 Intelligence from this crowd just by being British.
