It's no mystery why Leslie Hawthorn gets so much done. I distinctly remember asking her for funding for the Linux file systems workshop. We met at the Google campus, I described how the money would be used for about 10 minutes, and then she said, "Okay, sounds good. If you wait here, I'll go upstairs and get approval." Working with the Google open source office has always been a pleasure, and Leslie's efficiency and good cheer were a large part of that.
