Living Can Kill You

Lessons from Weblogs.com

The brouhaha over Dave Winer’s decision to pull the plug on weblogs.com-hosted blogs offers three axioms about the Web in specific, and life in general:

  1. when people get something for free, they often treat it as a right instead of a privilege;
  2. sometimes, even those who get “It” don’t get it;
  3. a little kindness can go a long way.

Update: Rogers Cadenhead stepped-up to host Weblogs.com blogs.
