Two points to be aware of.
- Kernel hackers move sometimes :)
Be sure to associate the two (or more) addresses of any hacker
with one person. Automating this may be quite difficult in some
cases.. My data from a year or so ago was completely different
to current. I think every field has changed since then.
On the other hand, it may be interesting to see the data tracking
hackers movements over the past few years :)

- Tracking by snail mail address (where present) is more accurate
than by email address TLD.
(Mine states .de, but I'm actually in London, UK for example)

Happy to help.
