I've met Prof. Brooks several times. He'd attend the SIGGRAPH
conferences. The first time, he walked up to my booth to buy
our product. I just about fell over when I read his badge.
I remember being quite choked up. I gave him anything he
wanted, and refused to take payment, in exchange for the
value his book gave me over the years.
