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.

  1. Did you come across the guy who claims that she unfairly accused him of attacking her? He’s one of the authors of the “Clue Train Manefesto”.
