SO is a great place to know how sharp people are there and how in-depth knowledge they have. They certainly become a source of inspiration for us. Just wanted to know who are you most inspired by here at SO in terms of good knowledge, quick answers with great details and more. Personally, I am really inspired by these two people (of course Jon Skeet too) for having great knowledge and ability to sweep away quick votes:

So who are you most inspired by?

    SO is about the questions and answers NOT the people (or at least it should be).

Urdnot the Krogan's severed Klingon head, who keeps a vigilant watch for dire threats to the Trilogy-o-sphere and keeps us all fresh.

He also serves as the Official Trilogy Historian.

Honestly, Joel for his amazing ability to be both a competent programmer and businessman, and for taking a stand for good treatment of programmers.

  • +1 Joel is pretty impressive. Don't forget his great writing-abilities too! The same goes for Jeff, on all points as well.
