Can there really be a greatest person?
It's hard to put someone in that category, impossible really. Too many aspects to look at.

Hmmmm. Cheating a little I'd say Martin Luther. Not cheating I'd say Gutenburg (sp?), inventor of the printing press.

The only person I would put in that category at this time would be my English teacher. Really smart, patient guy.

Hitler. Without him and his idiotic war, technology would presently be at the levels we had in approximately 1955.
