in reply to The early history of Perlmonks

In fact he was a co-worker of Tim Vroom's.

I didn't join BlockStackers until late summer 2000. I had contributed to the Everything Engine before this point, before Everything2 came about. It was everything.slashdot.org in those days. I believe PerlMonks was the first real use of the newer version of EE (0.8 compared to 0.7), but I don't remember when E2 started versus when PM started.

As I recall, the site was first open to the public just before Christmas in 1999. I may have had some inside knowledge, thanks to contributing a few patches and discussing some design with Nate Oostendorp on EE, but I don't believe I'd met vroom even virtually before PM started.

    Ah. That timeline means that by the time I first would have become aware of the relationship, you were already at BlockStackers. I just assumed that you had been there for a while. My bad.

    In that case I'd guess that the site actually was open Dec 23, but the only people who knew about it were ones who had some connection (eg through Everything) to nate or vroom.
