As exasperatingly usual for NewtonTalk, someone else has thought of this 


(A brief history of the list is in section three ["General List Info and 
History"].  I can't seem to link to that section directly, so please scroll down 
until you get to it.)

The history could probably do with an update.  I, too, am a relative n00b 
myself, but I'm guessing that Grant Hutchinson was promoted from assistant list 
admin (as he is listed) a good half-decade ago. However, between what it says in 
the FAQ and Jon Glass' recent post, there's probably enough material to piece 
things together, even for us new guys. :)

>Do we merit a page in Wikipedia, or somewhere a little less ambitious?

Rightly or wrongly, I suspect Newtontalk's reputation might precede it by now:


("Religiosity in the Abandoned Apple Newton Brand Community" Newton package from 
Ed Kummel's site).

I'm still trying to come to terms with last week, myself, so you're ahead of me 
there. :)
