Google Begins Fixing Usenet Archive

I say bravo...usenet may only be of interest to some of us old fogeys, but it is a record of the history of the beginning of social networking.

I wish they wouldn't. I posted stuff back then under my real name before I realized that it would stick around forever (or at least it will if Google does work on this project).
