Me and the history of the IMDB
There's an article in LA Weekly
giving the early history of the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), leading up to its eventual purchase and repurposing by Amazon-dot-com.
But, they seemed to have left out that I wrote the very first program to operate on the data that would eventually become the IMDB, and in Perl no less. Fortunately,
DejaGoogle has a record of said program.
