best looking software pundit?

I'm writing a magazine article for the society of women's engineers, regarding the 10 best looking pundits in the software industry. So far, I've got:

Jakob Nielsen
Phillip Greenspun
Don Box
John Dvorak
Tiger Woods
John Seymour
Edward Yourdon

Can you folks help me round out this list? I need to find 10, and I'd like to at least have 50 to chose from. Please, no open-source figureheads...our readership is not into guys who can't hold down a job.

"guys who can't hold down a job"? Not to start a religious war here, but seriously... Do you realize that almost every important OSS leader is gainfully employed at a very good job? RMS works at MIT. Linux works at Transmeta. You should be more interested: These are men who can balance major open-source projects, families, and careers quite well.

RMS doesn't really have a job at MIT. He just lived in his graduate school office for 15 years. He doesn't wear shoes, plays the flute, and is into group sex with the chunky folk dancing / renaissance faire crowd. Hardly someone balancing a job, open source project, and a family.

Group sex sounds fair to me.

But not with a couple of open-source-fanatic rednecks, thank you very much...

When you come out with the calendar, be sure to let us know.  But please, put Nielsen on February, since that is the shortest month.

when did Tiger Woods become a software pundit?

Tiger Woods wrote some seminal Apple II apps for Beagle Bros. back in the 80s.

Jason, you asked the obvious question, the trollbot waited an interval, and answered.
