Microsoft's chief software architect
I know Ray a little from my days at Lotus Development where I helped ensure that Lotus Notes was designed as a global product (one that could be cost effectively localized into a multitude of languages other than English - including some of the more interesting ones such as Arabic, Japanese and Chinese).
He is a very unassuming guy but one of the brightest brains on the planet when it comes to understanding collaborative technologies.
For more about him take a look at this Wired Magazine article.

Quotations from Ray Ozzie:
We should distrust any elaborately planned, centrally deployed, and carefully developed business system or process. Successful systems and processes will be agile and dynamically adaptive; they'll grow and evolve as needed over time.
