Who are your "Tech Heros?"
When I was young I idolized Jacques-Yves Cousteau
, in part because of the undersea technology (aqualung, minisubs, habitations, etc.) but also since he was one of the first to warn of overfishing and open-ocean pollution.
Do young people have technology heros today? (Linus T. and Bill G. come to mind, but I was hoping for someone more interesting...)
