I WANT TO START BY THANKING MY GIRLFRIEND (with any luck, fiancé by the time you are reading this) Gayle. She has been very supportive and EXTREMELY understanding during the process of writing this book. More than she should have had to be. Thank you.
I want to thank my parents for making this book possible by making me possible. My mother is so proud she'll read every page of this book. Bless her heart. I hope she's still proud when she realizes I lied and this is NOTHING like a Stephen King novel.
In the understanding and supporting department I would also like to thank Daniel Grey, Mark Kovacevich, Jeff Perry and everyone else at Improving Enterprises. I'd also like to thank Pete Klassen. We miss you man!
I'd like to thank Jeff McWherter and Michael Eaton for their contributions to this book. Jeff; thanks for taking some of the load off. Mike; thank you for pushing me to include the “non-web” people. I'd also like to thank my editor Sydney for making this book look like I know how to write.
Brian Prince; thank you for pushing me to get involved in the development community. I was going to write something funny here, but I couldn't think of anything. I'll getcha in the next one.
When I was presented with the opportunity to write this book, I almost said no. I want to thank Ted Neward for talking me into it. So, this is kinda your fault too.
I want to thank my partners in NPlus1.org Mike Wood and Chris Woodruff for picking up my slack of the past several months ...
