User Not Found

On a new read for me today, Cocokat in Slumberland, I read about a site devoted to discussion of online relationships and how we grieve when one of our virtual folk dies. The site is User Not Found. I can say that, being one whose fostered some pretty neat friendships with folks via e-mail through the years, I dread the day I hear one of these dear ones I know has died. Behind every blog, every family website, every e-mail address…there’s a person. I can’t help but make things personal, knowing that. I’d hope people would miss me if I disappeared, that I’ve made peoples’ days better sometimes. There are many of you I’ve never “fleshmet”, but if your voice was silenced, the web would have an empty spot.
