I just thought it was really cool that according to google.com
, the first mention of Star Wars Episode 6 (here
) is by Perlmonks
:) See the rest of the usenet timeline here
. There are some really interesting historical notes of interest on this list, ranging from Linus Torvalds' first post about his "pet project"
to the First thread about AIDS.
Kind of makes you wonder if 20 years from now, there'll be a website listing the first time someone on perlmonks
posted a node about how the XP system needed to be revamped :)
