Blog-guru and Userland founder Dave Winer has officially denied rumours sweeping the blogosphere that his recent illness is due to cancer in a colourful email to The Blog Herald;
“No I don’t have cancer, as far as I know, knock wood, praise Murphy, and god bless for checking.”
This is the good news; the bad news is Dave is now dodging bullets as he draws heavy flack over the discontinuation of the free hosting services at Weblogs.com. Coverage here, here and here. Sure Dave could have handled the termination of the free service better, but how about some praise for the fact that he provided it for years in the first place. To the free-loaders currently criticising Dave we say “welcome to the real world where the rest of us live”.
