Ron, awesome work. I got my copy via torrent, and now I'm seeding at
about 700K/sec@ O_o
I can't wait for folks to start digging into this dataset (myself
included) to see what we can come up with.

I spent some time recently spidering Facebook to get every person's name who has an account and is searchable. I
released the data from phase 1 of that project today, and thought I'd share:
Besides shameless self promotion (which I enjoy more than I can say ;) ), this can be exceptionally helpful if you're
going into a bruteforce against a company blind, and you have some way of finding out their username convention. I
pre-calculated first initial/last name, first name/last initial, and first name dot last name. I included the raw
data so you can process it yourself.
If you want the raw data (and even if you don't ;) ), grab the .torrent from the blogpost and let it download that
way. Nobody I know had enough bandwidth to serve hundreds of megabytes worth of files.
Let me know what you think! Phase 2 of my collection is going to start after Defcon is over and I'm safely back home.
Hope to see you all there! (Defcon, I mean, not my home)
