Tim Bray's videoblogging experiment today points to a wonderful Conversation between Dave Patterson and Jim Gray. Tim writes:
Patterson and Gray are both pretty famous in our profession, but neither is as famous as he deserves to be.
I'll second that. I once got Jim (along with Jeri Edwards) to write an article for BYTE that's still a great introduction to the subject of TP monitors.
The interview Tim points to is featured in a magazine I'd not heard of before, ACM Queue, which seems to have started quite recently (March 2003). The articles appear online, but I couldn't find an RSS feed, so I made one. Ah. Life is good!
