    Very nice link.

    Its always interesting to read up on not just the history but also see some of the people who helped make it all happen.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I was surprised to see that Al Gore isn't on that page...

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Interesting link, thanks for sharing. It's good to see a list of people who helped "pave the way" so to speak. I too, as well as gore, hope to see my name up there some day.
