The first time I met Peter was a typical rainy Edinburgh morning. I was already aware of his tremendous reputation, achievements, and contributions to database systems, but I had not officially met him until that day. It was Thursday, the first day of May, back in 2003; the time was about 8:30am. It is not so much that I have a good memory, as much as it that it was a special day for me. At the time, I was a graduating PhD student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and I was in Edinburgh for my interview.
