Then Nick introduced us and said “he wrote Greasemonkey.” I answered “I’m not worthy.”
This reminded me of the time I first met Aaron, at the dinner thrown by Adaptive Path and O’Reilly at the end of the first day of their Ajax Summit back in May. I saw him across the room and went over to say hello, since we had had some online interaction in Remote Scripting circles some years ago.
Humble as they come, Aaron was dumbstruck. He managed to stammer “…I think you have that the wrong way around!”, and then they fell into a rich conversation and I slipped away to mingle.
