Richard Bartle, Randy Farmer, and Pavel Curtis
Far as we can determine, these three gentlemen have never been in the same real world place at the same time before.
Dr. Richard Bartle: co-creator of MUD, designer and theorist.
Randy Farmer: co-creator of Habitat, the first graphical world (as well as much more).
Pavel Curtis: the moving force behind LambdaMOO.
That is the three biggest inflection points in the history of virtual worlds, right there. 1978/9, 1985, 1990. If only we had John Taylor and Kelton Flinn here too.
I got pics with myself and with Brian Green in the mix too. Brian is on the pioneers panel with them in a few minutes.

As above, but with me added to the mix
