… one of the more interesting things I’ve seen on the internet. Check it out.
Blogger Brian Beutler was shot earlier this year. The blogosphere reacted in interesting ways. Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote a post about the attack and now, 6 months later, they are on Bloggingheads discussing it.
This is fascinating not so much as a discussion of crime and identity, but of internet and community, and the way the online community reacts and interacts. The death this week of Tanta, who blogged at Calculated Risk, again demonstrated how strangely entwined the digital community is.
