After five years of being considerate about putting people's names here -- I have now (May 2003) decided to start my own list of people. This list includes people who I think became the leaders of the WebIR community. If you think your name is missing (or think other people should be mentioned here) -- please do not hesitate to write to me (einat at webir.org). A condition for being mentioned here is having a Web page that I can link to.

Two and a half years later... (now end of 2005) - they move from one lab to the next so fast now that I lost count.... Sorry - I'll try to update as I go - if they let me know or if I hear any news...
