Damian Conway[1] is a computing demi-god; he does not make the first
team with the likes of Knuth[2], Chomsky[3], and Admiral Grace
Hopper[4], but he can come off the bench to pinch hit and absolutely
slam one out of the park:

Damian and I were colleagues for many years. We fled from academia around the same time. He effectively was bought out of his day job by the Perl community. [*]
