Gravatar Ha... I liked this puzzle.

I recognised several of them, but the only ones I know without resorting to google are :

2) Guido Van Rossum
3) Phillip Eby

Gravatar Yes, that is correct. As a prize, I will give you one of my projects. Shall we say, Firedrop?

Gravatar Cool - ok, I accept.

Also in the no-google spirit:

1) Bob Ippolito

I've read 6 but I'd have to google it. (The shame!)

I didn't recognize 5, 7, 8, or 10. I've subscribed to 7's blog now, though.
