The list below are many of the people on whose work and life has influenced what has become Elegant Reasonism. Some are modern, some ancient, others contemporary. Part of the Elegant Reasonism process requires a historical view of the original works by the original author. We have hundreds of Gbs of material being organized into the Libray of public domain materials. Material not in the public domain is not listed but remains a resource nevertheless.

Accomplishing unification was an epic task and it could not have been done absent the incredible insight and wisdom of the following people both living and gone. It is said that we all stand on the shoulders of giants and in this case that is certainly true. For me, Charles C McGowen, I am eternally grateful to have been alive at a time allowing such interactions to influence what must be. There is no chance I could have done this alone in a vacuum. Persistence, perseverance, and steadfast focus on pursuit of something that had to be within our grasp was my meager contribution.

You guys one and all influenced me and my thinking more than I can ever describe in words. I do not believe I could have done this absent the impression you left within me. Your pursuit of excellence, dedication to the customer, and respect for each other is unmatched. You are forever in my heart.
