Update: Read about Kathy Sierra, Chris Locke, and Due Process.
Kathy Sierra, who's blog I've come to enjoy very much, canceled her tutorial yesterday and session this morning because of death threats (warning--this link goes to graphic material) she's received on her blog and on other blogs. This saddens me deeply and makes me angry. I'm sad and angry that someone--anyone--has to endure this kind of fear in their life. What's more, I'm sad that these actions have silenced someone who has so much to offer to the world. It's unacceptable. It's hateful. It's simply wrong.
