    John Lasseter. He and I could talk for hours without stopping.

    John Carmack is another good one. I bet he's fascinating to talk with. We'd nerd out on graphics until neither one of us could speak any longer.

    Richard Feynman. He's pretty much everything I ever wanted to be.

    Saying he's russian and jewish is like saying I'm norwegian and a computer programmer. I came from that stock, but I didn't go that way...

    ...having said that, yes: russian and jewish. :)

    Carl Sagan. Inspirational.

    Either Albert Camus, for his beautifully true mind, or Abe Lincoln. Just to find out what went on in that twisted noggin of his.

    Feynman as well. Watching his interviews always makes me realize how low I've stooped from my starting roots.

    John Coltrane.

    Would love to listen to his life story from his perspective, as opposed to everyone else's perspective. I would also love to talk to him about his Jazz inspirations and his inspiration and Faithful journey in writing "A Love Supreme."

    Kurt Vonnegut

    He rekindled my love of reading when I was in college. I swear the man had a direct line to every emotion I possess.

    Steven Hawking without a doubt...

    I've read alot of his theories but actually being able to sit down with him and have a debate about the universe/religion would be amazing...

    I know it's cliche, but definitely Siddartha (the Buddha). The wisest man to ever walk this earth, IMO.

    I would like to meet and speak with Leonardo da Vinci. To name a few he was a Painter, musician, architect, botanist, and inventor. I would kill to stand by him for a day.

    When I was studying for my A-Levels I went to a lecture by him. It was really interesting but I will always remember that half way through he just stopped talking. and the whole auditorium fell silent. We all started looking at each other wondering what was going on and the next thing you know a technichian walks on from the side and starts fiddling with his wheelchair. Next thing we all hear the Windows 98 start up theme tune reverberate around the room. He may be the smartest man in the world but he still relied on Mr Gates to talk to anyone!!!

    As for who I would want to talk to... That is a tough one. I would love to spend time talking to DJ QBert

    If you watch this video, listen to the beat at the start. That is all that is on the record. He makes all the rest with his scratching.
