Business of software speakers

I’m thinking about organizing Business of Software 2008. It’s still just a twinkle in my eye. I’d like to know who you’d like to hear speak / who you’ve heard in the past who was excellent. The only criteria are:

  • Relevant to the business of software, even tenuously
  • Interesting

They don’t have to be speakers who we could ever net (see my list below …), but they don’t have to be well known either.

My personal list so far includes:

  • Seth Godin
  • Edward Tufte
  • Steve Ballmer
  • Larry Ellision
  • Steve Jobs
  • Shai Agassi
  • Vint Cerf
  • Dan Pink
  • Chip Heath
  • Donald Norman
  • Alan Cooper
  • Jakob Nielsen
  • Robert X Cringely
  • Richard Stallman

Comments on my speakers? Who would you like to hear? Post here.
