I lent them my bathroom to be their first POP in Japan. (People wouldn’t rent space to an unknown US company.) I was probably one of the first people in Japan to have a 128K leased line in their toilet.
Joi Ito about PSINets expansion to Japan (via his bathroom). Nowadays, among other things, he’s on the board of directors of creative commons.
uh, i LOVE it: a CNN special called “Online Evolution“. nice intro to idea, timeline and key players of the internet; nice & acessible user statistics; and the whole content structured quite smartly into three categories:

oh, and this dude even has a website, which turns out to be kind of funny. (what is it with me, that i tend to find websites of military dictatorships so amusing?)
Note that to enter the website, you get tunneled through a “leader” website, where both the great leader and the dear leader wave at you.
also, i just heard that from someone in south korea that access to all north korean websites is blocked. that was new to me: does south korea filter a lot of stuff?

Really, really good stuff.
