This is a directory with small bio's, mostly taken from the web, about individuals involved somehow with P2P. It is not reserved for the big names, but to any peer that makes contributions, even microcontent. Feel free to add your own name as P2P researcher, author of an article, etc...

Instructions: To create a page, create a file in this format p2pfoundation.net/Last name, First name. End the entry with the following by adding Category Individuals between double straight brackets.
Please note the format, namely Lastname, Firstname. I have noticed some collaborators are entering different formats. I have not deleted them but please note the official page for updating is the one following the original format.
The regular database entries are listed after the P2P Hall of Fame.
