I know it's difficult to keep track of all of the lists that feature Jim Goodnight. But I thought it was especially interesting when I saw him on someone's "bucket list".
I'm not sure if the list in priority order. Dr. Goodnight falls just below Thomas Friedman, but ahead of Bill Gates. He has all sorts of interesting company on the list.
Speaking as someone who has already met Dr. Goodnight, I can confirm that the experience is rewarding, but I'm not quite ready to die happy yet. Perhaps I'll get a chance to meet Dave Barry at the next SAS Global Forum, then I'll be ready to kick it.
