Blogging a Family Disaster


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:

It is 7:08 AM on Sunday, May 23rd 2004. I am sitting in my car behind my burning house…

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.
