Who are the most influential Flashers today?

Experiencing five Flash conferences in the last two months has left me with lots of inspiration from the sessions of some exceptional Flashers, whom I'm honored to call my friends. But it also left me wanting more and so I'm asking you guys:

Who do are your influences? Who inspires you? Who has their finger on the pulse of where the Flash Platform is today? Who do you listen to?

Leave a comment and share your inspirations.
