“…and Terry started taking pictures as Terry does with everything.”
—Cal Evans, Editor of Zend Dev Zone, in a Pro::PHP Webcast
[the origin after the jump.]
My memory was a bit different.
Cal came up to me asking if I was Terry Chay and introducing himself as Cal Evans. We need to schedule an interview for Zend DevZone, he pointed out. Wez chimed in about his time. Of course, I still wasn’t done with my two talks so I pointed out that it’d have to be later (it turned out to be never) and he said that was okay because he had a lot of others to interview.
That’s when I said how could he come up to me and completely ignore Andrei, Mr. PHP 6, who was sitting next to me. Cal said he didn’t recognize Andrei, pulled out something and starting flipping through it.
“What are those?” Andrei asked.
“These are something I made so I can identify the people I’m interviewing.” he said. He was clearly a little embarassed.
I got up and went behind him. “Hey cool! I have a trading card!” That’s about when we demanded he cough them all up.
