One of my favorites is going down. Hopefully, only for the nonce, but Robot Wisdom is going on hiatus due to Jorn Barger's financial troubles. See his message at http://www.robotwisdom.com/weblogs/yafc.html .
Jorn's proto-rant goes right to the heart of online community dynamics, though I'd offer that it's the intelligent cruel folks who are the most dangerous. I'm tempted to see the caring/cruel split in terms of the political left and right, though I know that's not at all fair. What do you think, is there any wisdom in Jorn's words? And what does all this have to do with James Joyce?
