I have a question: Famous to whom? Or Famous among which group? I think the
original poster meant famous-famous (think Michael Jackson or Larry King, to
give two bad examples), not famous among other tech writers...

My first reaction is to point out that the owners of THIS list, TECHWR-L,
Eric J. Ray and Deborah S. Ray wrote a book that I have, "HTML4 For Dummies:
Quick Reference." That makes them famous in my eyes. (I think they've
written other books, too.)

And if being asked for your autograph makes you famous, let me be the first
to curry favor with our beloved List Owners by craving their autographs.
