Is anyone willing to start and establish a "History of Bitcoin" wiki page?  It would be interesting to document notable events as they happened.
The content at http://www.bitcoin.org/wiki/doku.php?id=incidents could be integrated into a fully documented history of Bitcoin-related events.

I added some information on the "OP_RETURN" bug that triggered the 0.3.5 release (and that we weren't talking about because we didn't want it to get exploited on the main network before people had a chance to upgrade).

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

If there is to be a history, I hope people fill in some of the "standard history stuff" as well as a droll listing of security events.  When did satoshi generate the first bitcoin?  What events (ie. slashdotting) triggered large influxes of new users?  When did the first bitcoin-denominated businesses appear?  etc.

This wiki page was just for reference.  I suggest creating a "History of Bitcoin" specific wiki page for documenting the history.

I would like to know these types of interesting things too!
