Slashdot Trivia

I just wanted to set down this little piece of Net trivia for myself. In 1992-1993, I was attending teachers’ college in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My student teaching placement was in Holland, Michigan, a town about half an hour away on Lake Michigan. I taught at Holland Christian Middle School. At the time I was teaching there, Rob Malda (now better known as “CmdrTaco”), founder of Slashdot, was attending Holland Christian High School right next door. My girlfriend at the time went on to teach art at the high school and more than likely taught him, since art was/is one of his passions. Small world.
