Not forgetting the British guy (English actually but we'll gloss over that), Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the web and made this form of communication possible.
Actually, Dale's role in all of this is vastly over-rated. All he did was start the list. He would have been pretty lonely if 1,000 of us hadn't bothered to humour him...
