Support for Kathy Sierra
March 27, 2007
Like so many other bloggers I am shocked to read Kathy Sierra’s post on the death threats she has received. We can lull ourselves into a false sense of security around the touchy-feely niceness of social media, the value of connecting online and the wonders it brings but once in a while a salutary lesson comes along about the darker side of this activity. Secrets and abuse live in the shadows, I salute Kathy for speaking out in this attention economy age- she has my respect and my good wishes. I hope the people behind this abuse are brought to justice in an appropriate way.
