Yeah, Privacy in general, and Internet Privacy in particular, are enormously complex topics.

In writing this node, I felt torn between privacy concerns and reporting interesting historical facts. I suspect this is a common problem for historians and amateur family history researchers.

The Dot-com bubble era in which Perl Monks formed is of interest to me, as are the individuals who made it happen. I'm amazed at how many influential players in this era came from Hope College Holland Michigan. As pvaldes pointed out, you could make a movie or write a book about this!

I view the creation of Slashdot, the Everything Engine, and the Everything2 and PerlMonks web sites as significant accomplishments, significant enough to be of historical interest. Since I don't know any of the early players I can't be certain of course, but I hope they are proud of their historic role and accordingly would not mind being identified.
