36 Heroes

I just finished Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson of 37signals. An excellent read.

The last page is a "list of some of the people we know, and don't know, who have inspired us in one way or another." Nice to see heroes of mine like Kent and Dieter. Makes me want to find out more about Marc and Judith.
