> Oh a 15 year old, how cute.

C'mon, really?

I'm much more interested in the story of a 15-year old developer creating and publishing something, than I am in yet another node module.

> Imagine someone of 36 made this module and included his age.

Yes, that would probably be dumb. But 15 is not 36. Lots of people write programs at a young age. Not many publish them on the internet, at least historically. I was writing programs at that age, but I wasn't publishing them.

Heck, even just from the "hack the social system of hacker news by including age" angle this fits with many posts we see here regularly.
