    My buddy just sent me this link because I'm always (trying-- semi-serious/semi-joke) reminding him how important Gutenberg's contributions have been. It's kinda an inside thing between him and me.

    Anyway, I know this is one of those stupid, non-representative (non-accurate) internet "lists," but it amazed me that Tesla did not even make the list out of, I think, 117 people.

    I would have answered him as "Most Influential," but don't tell my buddy.

    Who do you feel is the most influential person in World History?

    Ghandi and Dr. Martin Luther King would be among my top, but since both were strongly influenced by Henry David Thoreau, I'll have to cast my vote for Thoreau.
