I sort of dropped the ball on this, but sometime in the last week or two, the first user reached 10,000 reputation on Super User.

That user is John T.

July 15th was the first day of beta, and John — as of this writing — has 11,232 reputation. That means in about 48 days, John has produced 234 reputation per day. (Remember that bounties and accepted answers are immune to the 200/day reputation cap.)

Congratulations John, and thanks for leading the charge to provide great answers on Super User!
