Big shout-outs are due to the founders of CoSA: David Simons, David Herbstman; David Foster, and particularly Greg Deocampo, without whom the Esther video would never have existed. Praise is also due to the creators of the PACo program - David Simons, David Herbstman and Sarah Lindsley - for giving the Esther video a purpose beyond driving me crazy and for generally being the kind of scarily talented people who don't get enough recognition. Extra thanks go to David Simons, whose unfailing generosity and support have been an inspirational thorn in my procrastinating side for more years than I care to remember. Finally, special thanks for the design and preparation of this site go to John J. Hill, designer extraordinaire for web, print and video. Check out his site at, and give him work!
