Nods, or: influences and appreciations

I've been meaning to get this section up since I started the website, and it's certainly taken a while getting here but finally, it's arrived. I'd be kidding you if I said I expected it to move fast, even though I have an enormous list of people to write about. But you know how it is...don't you?

This is about people who've influenced me; explaining a bit about them, talking about their work, and also saying how they've influenced me. Not formal bios, journalism, etc. But hopefully my enthusiasm will be contagious to anyone not in the know, and fun to share for those who are also fans.
