This is a very eclectic group, which I guess honoring them here reflects my own oddity. They are predominantly people that are completely unknown outside of their fields of endeavor.
|Albert Jay Nock||One of the "fathers" of "classical liberalism" (libertarianism), which is the political and economic philosophy I embrace (and I think God does as well). Not an anarchist and definately nothing like a socialist.|
|Joseph Smith, Jr.||Very endurant man and the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He is the prophet through whom God worked to restore the full gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth!|
|Gary Kildall||A guy who knew how to be proportionate in life and business, who never took himself too seriously, and was the creator of the computer operating system CP/M and a co-founder of (Intergalactic) Digital Research, Inc.|
|Chuck Moore||The creator of the Forth programming language and hardware designed upon the same lines. Accused of being clinically insane and is very particular about where he lives.|
|Paul Erdos||The wandering mathmatician that collaborated with everyone. Homeless yet had a home everywhere and often talked in his own language.|
|Bob Pease||One of the most brilliant analogue circuit engineers ever. Avid Nepal hiker.|
|Jon Postel||A pioneer of the Internet, "the" editor of many Internet standards and Requests for Comment, and "the" Internet Assigned Numbers Authority. A benevolent dictator in the grain of God.|
