This is a treemap of the Usenet newsgroup discussion community space generated by the Netscan system at Microsoft Research. This map represents the number of unique authors in each Usenet newsgroup who appeared in the current year. Data on the number of "posters" in each newsgroup was collected and calculated by the Netscan service. The area of each box is proportional to the number of authors that newsgroup attracted in the current year. Newsgroups with bigger poster populations create bigger boxes. Color maps to change from the prior year, green indicating growth and red for decline over the prior time period. The original sized image shows significant detail. The treemap tool is available for free download from the research.microsoft.com web site. It comes with an Excel plug-in that allows users to generate their own treemaps with any data they can get into a spreadsheet (that contains a properly formatted hierarchical data structure). Your mileage may vary. Netscan can be found at netscan.research.microsoft.com.

Sierra Corporate Design is the entity suing two spam activists, who revealed that Jerry Reynolds was the largest spammer on Usenet. Sierra Corporate Design, the company, is owned by Reynolds. Both are located in North Dakota, and Jerry Reynolds was the owner of the sites, Netzilla.com and Sexzilla.com, in the mid to late 90’s. These sites were the largest spammers on Usenet.

Tomorrow, one of these guys being sued has to turn over computers and faces a court appearance in North Dakota (he lives in CA). Therefore the North Dakota court has no jurisdiction over him.
