Cory Doctorow likes me

Cory Doctorow is a famous science fiction writer and blogger for Boing Boing, where he established a reputation for his stands on intellectual property rights and civil liberties. To date I have never read a book by Doctorow but I intend to remedy that shortly, having acquired two already (and so can you on his website here, where he offers all of his books as a free download). In my defense I can say I have been following Doctorow's internet trail with much passion for a while now, and I can think I can safely say he's one of those people I look up to.
Today, I have had the honor of having Doctorow look me up. Or rather, look my photos up on Flickr. As the attached image shows, Doctorow selected a couple of my photos as personal favorites.
Sure, the photos he selected are actually photos I took of him on Friday during the AussieCon4 science fiction convention (here and here). Then again, I have also exchanged tweets with the guy from time to time before. Still, it's nice to be recognized by the right people.
