It's about people....real people....
Ultimately the internet is about people or it's about nothing at all.
At first glance I think many offline folks would think it odd to see a post of the passing of Jeremy Z's Grandmother on his blog - one of the web's most prominent. But as the posting itself and the heartfelt comments indicate this is a fine statement of respect and affection for a dear member of the family.
Our ability to blend and connect people, emotion, respect and affection with the online tools will define not only our business success, it has begun to define us as successful human beings.
