web walker - A small list of some good works

People who are doing things for good reasons and in a good way. That i admire their goals, their means, their integrity, their dedication. And attempt to follow them.

The word "tireless" kept repeating when i was thinking of descriptions for each. So i guess that's a requirement for my admiration: that they be tireless :D
