Not To Be Missed

Dave Winer wrote yesterday about Health and the Web. Make sure to read it.

David Weinberger and I were in line for lunch at the Tuesday conference at the Ritz and I said, "Did you hear someone on the Web wrote that Dave Winer should drop dead -- even knowing what he's been through -- it's indecent."

And David said, "That's an understatement."

Something really sick happens when you become famous enough to be treated like a thing instead of a person. What is that about? I thought this was a community of friends and supporters.

Oh, I guess not, ... it's a community of brave souls who dare to hold strong opinions and a bunch of cowards who take pot shots at them. Great.
