in the thanks section:

;; Thanks to everyone for their suggestions for refinements of this
;; package.  I particularly have to credit Michael Cook, who
;; implemented an incremental completion style in his 'iswitch'
;; functions that served as a model for icomplete.  Some other
;; contributors: Noah Friedman (restructuring as minor mode), Colin
;; Rafferty (lemacs reconciliation), Lars Lindberg, RMS, and others.

it mentioned Noah Friedman +Noah Friedman,  which i recognize, thank to  +Nick Alcock  (who is currently the great mole with all sensors extended).

also, look at the author's email address. “i.am”, how cool is that?
