I can't do an import of the old, full-public spreadsheet today, but if you (or anyone else) wants to, just send me an email with your Google account email so I can add you as a direct editor.
We all know how that community acts compared to how this community acts and it's no secret that many of their users like to stalk our hallways when they get bored of lolcats.
"Oh look, a thing on the Internet that is getting attention but isn't read-only. I'd better jump in a troll it up before it gets locked down." I won't welcome their userbase here until they can learn to act like adults when the situation calls for it. They're just a different breed and while I don't mind going onto their site to enjoy the humorous comments, you won't find me trying to have an actual debate on there.
"...Often times I need someone to talk to when I need to bounce an idea around and I don't have another programmer / techie in my area. I also don't work in an office and find IRC a little cold. So, let's go remote, I will be your proxy desk neighbour.
Are there any HN IRC channels? It'd be great to actually get to know some HN people.

The burden might be eased if the curator generated a seed list, posted it to HN, then asked, "Who am I missing?"

Is a wave with IRC chat and access to this Document.
Also add all previous spreadsheets, white pages, contractors, projects, etc in one place so we know where to go when we need any hacker info.
It would have been better if we could ask the users to update the relevant info right on there profiles. But i guess this way all the willing ppl are just consolidated and you don't have to go hunting them down.
There's got to be a better way...
Also, honestly, IRC can be pretty good for this sort of thing if you don't happen upon a really lame channel.
I was trying to consolidate all such lists into one directory, so that we don't keep repeating and duplicating such content. I've linked it above. I would prefer one place for this sort of stuff, HN/IRC, where i can find it if needed. I'm fine with anything that works
