Well, yes. He was well-known in some online circles before he coined (I think "founded" is a little strong) Godwin's Law. I knew him on rec.arts.books and other Usenet newsgroups; that was one of the place he first posted GL. I dare say there are plenty of other Reg readers who saw some of those initial formulations.

He's also well-known for his work with EFF, Wikimedia Foundation, etc. And recently and controversially with ISOC.

As for "still alive" - he's only in his mid-60s.
