I’ve often cited “Creating Passonate Users" and one of its chief bloggers, kathy Sierra, as a favorite site, rich with humor, wisdom and solid advice.
So I was totally bummed out by this latimes.com piece
that reports threats have forced her to cancel appearances and worst of all, to shut down her blog. (sorry i can't embed the links in the text. I'm using a loaner machine that's playing tricks.)
Go to her post, "Death Threats are NOT "protected speech" http://headrush.typepad.com/
and you’ll understand why, in the face of such hate speech, she’s scared to leave her yard and is not sure she’ll ever blog again. What a loss! What a crime (is it?)
What can/should/is being done about it?
