You know, its often hard to assign any credibility to people you come across in the blogosphere. Even a lot of really popular bloggers - its hard to say what their motivations are. It's hard to find people who particularly resonate.
But, Kathy Sierra has been different. Almost immediately after discovering her blog, I was pretty well hooked on the style, the insights, and the honesty for me. I guess Kathy writes about what could be broadly termed "creating great experiences", but its so much more than that.
Her posts are the most referenced I have seen in the blogosphere.
Now, I read over at Jeffrey Keefer's Silence and Voice that Kathy has been receiving ugly ugly death threats - and it makes me sick to my stomach. We need Kathy's voice on the Internet - where it can be amplified thousands of times over, and benefit many many people.
We cannot stand for this. And I will support Kathy through this in whatever way I can.
