If you could bring 1 person back from the dead (any historical figure) who would you choose? (and why)...

For me...

Robert Noyce (my idol lol)... Founder of intel.. His work and moral ethics are inspiring truely a great person..

Good video on Noyce. Too bad the guy died kinda young.

I'd bring back Ben Franklin. I'd like to hear his reactions and thoughts on where technology has gone. Ditto on politics.

I am all for science and techonology but for my vote I think I would want to bring back someone who got shafted and never got to really live like Anne Frank.  Too bad there are far too many choices.

Hmmm, was going to reply with Jimi Hendrix but already gave my one person. Now I'm waffling. Tough choice, Hendrix or Ben... smiley-confuse

Given that choice you might like this book, http://www.amazon.com/Tempus-Fugit-Lawrence-Rowe/dp/0976766809/ref=la_B005W3LFAE_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1348489634&sr=1-1

The author has gone to great pains to try and accurately portray the three Presidents in today's world.  Besides it is great fun to think of Franklin running for President today!

Alan Turing.

I'm hoping he can help with my next Arduino project.

It would also be fun to take Edison to an Imax theater.
