Hear, hear!! Well said! Blender is all of our "in-house software." Congrats!!
Maybe they should hire Andy as suit advisor.
Is there any other open source honor in this event?
A hearty congratulations to our great friend Ton, from the Aussie girls, Cathy & India! Well done!
Congrats to Ton. He really deserves it. I'm sure that the all community is happy for him.
Hear hear! Congrats Ton!
Way to go Ton! :D You deserve it, and many other honorary degrees.
Ton, you talk the talk AND walk the walk.
Respect is due, nice one.
Many people WANT to read what you wanna say. You should write many pages.
Very inspiring words, thanks!
Very nice words Dr. Ton.
I'm wondering whether there is a reason why he wears such a colourful dress.
love to see a bit of respect had.
Long time in the coming.
I think we have to refrain a little bit on the "Dr." title thing. I know the Dutch well enough to say that they think that titles are wayyyy old school. But hey, he does a really cool Dr. House impression LOL.
Congratulations Ton. Thank you again for your generosity. Blender really speaks for itself. It doesn't need a multi million euro marketing campaign for it to get noticed.
A much-deserved award for all devotion to the amazing project that is Blender, and an excellent job of "reprezenting" Open Source!
And if you wear that awesome hat to SIGGRAPH, watch out; I just may try to steal it! :) I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
I really am a big fan of Ton's philosophy. congratulations, Ton. ^_^
next up, honorary doctorate in business and management!
never saw this coming, but it's well overdue
YouÂ´re awesome Ton! Long live Blender! and congrats man!
You're an insperation to us all! Congrats!
The whole place looks like Hogwart :)
And it's not Dr. House. It's Dr. In-House.
Ton: the creator of the best GUI ever, and the best 3d software.
Bravo! Well said Ton!
Congrats again man!!
Big Cheers and Congratulations for Ton!!!
You really deserve it!
THX to all the community and Devs!
Blender really is a kick-ass tool 4 multi purposes, I Love it :)
