I heard you too... nice to meet you :)

The best moment of the evening for me today came on my way back home, I was sat on the DLR looking at some code, when three Americans, one guy and two girls, probably in the late part of their 20s, sat in front of me and started to talk loud (like US people always do). At first I didn't pay attention to what they were saying but soon a signal from the depths of my mind said "Pascal, I think you should pay attention"...

One minute later something was absolutely clear to me: I was in presence of three of the best and brightest minds I had ever... heard.

The pace of my coding slowed down, to let me listen to their conversation, and as I arrived at my station, one of the girls who had glanced at me a couple of times, smiled at me in a very distinctive way that, I felt, meant "I heard you too... nice to meet you :)"

Those last few seconds will stay with me for ever....
