John Scalzi Kibozes the Web

John Scalzi's recent blog post, explaining how he searches the Web for mentions of his name and occasionally comments on sites he finds, strongly reminded me of Kibo.

This strong reaction prompted me to do some searching of ancient Internet history using Google Groups, in particular looking for some reference to the @ibo name I briefly claimed as my own. I found this entertaining, and absolutely true, post I made in 1997. Hard to believe that was only 11 years ago.
