Top 10 living mathematicians (or recently living)

An iniquitous question, perhaps, but certainly
there are mathematicians still living who are,
for one reason or another, more widely known.
It exposes my background, perhaps, but I would
include Perelman, Wiles, Graham and Conway.

Who would you nominate for your current (or near
current) top 10? Impossible, of course, since
there are now more mathematicians living than
have ever lived before, but it's a different
twist than asking for the greatest ever.

Feel free to include nominations for "greatest
ever" as well:

Euler, Gauss, Eudoxus, Fermat, ...

And of course, Erdos.
