Who do you want to see interviewed next?

I have interviewed a bunch of people already, some of them on this blog and some of them on my old blogger blog before I started blogging here.

Below is the list of all the people so far

Louis Davidson

Itzik Ben-Gan

Ken Henderson

Kalen Delaney

Adam Machanic

Interview With Stéphane Faroult About Refactoring SQL Applications

Database Refactoring Interview With Scott W. Ambler

Interview With Joe Celko About The Forthcoming Book Thinking In Sets

Who else should I interview? I have some ideas but I would like the SQLBlog audience to participate. Here is my thinking, after we have a list of possible people, I will contact them and ask if they will agree to an interview. If they agree I will make a post here and ask you what you would like to ask this person. I usually have a good set of questions but there might be someone out there with some real good/interesting questions.

So post the name of the person you would like to see interviewed and hopefully this person will agree.

It would be nice if you did not pick a person who blogs here but if_you_really_wanted_to then I will not stop you  :-0

Please keep it database related, it doesn't have to be specific to SQL Server but it has to be applicable to SQL Server.

How about Jamie Thomson, the SSIS junkie? I suppose it might be a stretch from your specified guidelines though.

About Denis Gobo

I was born in Croatia in 1970, when I was one I moved to Amsterdam (and yes Ajax is THE team in Holland) and finally in 1993 I came to the US. I have lived in New York City for a bunch of years and currently live in Princeton, New Jersey with my wife and 3 kids. I work for Dow Jones as a Database architect in the indexes department, one drawback: since our data goes back all the way to May 1896 I cannot use smalldates ;-( I have been working with SQL server since version 6.5 and compared to all the other bloggers here I am a n00b. Some of you might know me from or even from some of the newsgroups where I go by the name Denis the SQL Menace If you are a Tek-Tips user then you might know me by the name SQLDenis, I am one of the guys answering SQL Questions in the SQL Programming forum.
