blast from politics list past

jimbo wales, the guy who created Wikipedia was interviewed (not happily) on CNN. he was a major contributor in the early days of the internet on the politics list(late 80s, early 90s). i knew the guy virtually, but today is the first day i found out what he actually looks like! we both share stories in a book that some other friends wrote, Internet Explorer’s Kit for Macintosh by Adam Engst and William Dickson (also big contributor to the early politics list).
here’s the story on CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/internet/12/05/wikipedia.rules.ap/index.html
