From Jason Kottke:
Publishing on kottke.org is suspended until further notice. The situation in New York and New Jersey is still dire** so posting stupid crap seems frivolous and posting about the Sandy aftermath seems exploitive. Information is not what people need right now; people need flashlights, candles, drinking water, safety, food, access to emergency medical care, a warm place to sleep, etc.
Interesting he identifies his site content as “stupid crap.”
In the face of dire living conditions, it’s amazing how much of what we do seems so pointless.
