Best Keynote Ever?

Today I see that Trimble announced its keynote speakers for its User Conference. They include Peter Hillary (explorer, author, adventurer), Dan Burrus (business author of Technotrends, 1993)and Bob Ballard (“legendary explorer and discoverer of wreck of the Titanic”). Mr. Hillary did the ESRI UC a few years ago (if I recall correctly; I was not in attendence), Mr. Burrus spoke at an Autodesk event some years ago and Mr. Ballard joined us at a New England Arc User Group. These names got me to thinking. What was the best keynote ever at a geo or tech event you attended?

I don’t have to think about it for a second: James Burke, the Connections guy (website) at ESRI UC in the mid-1990s. I still remember the first thing (and many of the later things) he said: “I will speak for exactly one hour, so I hope you’ve all been to the toilet.”
