's research on "The Last Page of the Internet"

In 2001, I posted a brief item on “The Last Page of the Internet,” a meme that was already well-established at the time. I did a quick Google search, posted what I found, and added a few comments. used my page as a starting point for a recent item that traces the meme much further back. 

Careful crowdsourcing from an amusing website. Just as I was impressed by the culture of textual citation that arose in Harry Potter fanfic circles, I’m always pleased when I come across an example of research skills in the wild.
