In some ways, we may be premature in setting up a hall of fame,
with Geoff Houston excluded as he is the closest thing to a father
of the internet in oz. most sports etc go for many years before
the hall of fame bit, and if the answer is not obvious, maybe there
should be no one added until it is? after all, it is not an election
per se where someone has to win - sometimes you induct 2 or 3 people
at the same time, sometimes none.
for mine, it is too early for additions...
