xkcd creator gives a talk at Google

Who in this planet is that popular, loved enough and has struck the geeky chord to have Peter Norvig (pioneer of AI, director at Google) himself give an introduction, Don Knuth (Don of Computer Science, Turing awardee) attend the talk and ask (four!) questions, and the Google engineers overflow the auditorium just to catch a glimpse of?

It is none other than the creator of xkcd comics. Watch this talk to believe me...

Note : xkcd comics are very popular among the computer science community. So popular that whatever is put in the comics, people believe are their own stories! They sometimes feel that someone is spying them to get these stories. this shows how the comics strikes the right chord.
