Jay McCarthy has been part of the Harvard blogging scene for the past
year and coordinated a lot of the community networking (WiFi, webcast,
etc.) for the Bloggercon convention this spring.
His family home burned down this weekend. All family members got out
OK, as did Jay and the laptop he blogs with… So of course he
blogged about the experience while watching the fire:
Lisa Williams, another Thursday night regular, has started a fund-raising campaign online, complete with PayPal contributions.
I’m not sure what I think of the automated Google ads for fire alarms
and smoke detectors that pop up at the bottom of J’s weblog item.
