I've met Karen in person once, at a conference. She's pretty amazing. :) She's very down to earth and matter of fact about big, emotional issues. Very inspirational.

Yes, I believe that's right, Joe -- the threads are connected...violence is violence, threat is threat. Krishnamurti said it this way in Freedom from the Known (see right sidebar): "...let us ask ourselves, can this society, based on competition, brutality and fear, come to an end? Not as an intellectual conception, not as a hope, but as an actual fact, so that the mind is made fresh, new and innocent and can bring about a different world altogether? It can only happen, I think, if each one of us recognizes the central fact that we, as individuals, as human beings, in whatever part of the world we happen to live or whatever culture we happen to belong to, are totally responsible for the whole state of the world." Surely there are degrees...but the structure of threat and of violence is largely the same wherever it exists...and that means to me that single examples, such as Kathy Sierra's recent situation, are fractals of the larger scene. Which is more important, a leaf or the larger tree? The point is that the leaf is the tree.

Dan: you've woven a rich tapestry of threads of darkness and light, injury and healing, anger and compassion, cruelty and kindness. Taking the larger view that encompasses China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Darfur, it seems to make the unfolding of recent blogospheric events less important ... and yet, as I write this, I can hear the voice of Dan saying "No, actually, these threads are important wherever they manifest themselves, as we are all connected." In any case, the recent "coordinated" statement by Kathy Sierra and Chris Locke manifests many of these threads -- both the dark and the light -- and gives [me] hope in the transformative power of love. I'm reminded of a quote by Grover Washington Carver that I first encountered on Jane McGonigal's home page: "Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough". Let's hope so...
