In response to Joyce “Troutgirl” Park’s firing over her blog (which I covered here), he’s written an article which concludes with this paragraph:
Ecologists know that life is most interesting, and also most dangerous, at habitat boundaries — where the ocean meets the shore, where the forest meets the meadow. And in the virtual world, where the private meets the public. A healthy ecosystem requires that we colonize that marginal zone. When people get hurt trying to do that — in the right ways, for the right reasons — we should offer them not only our condolences, but also our thanks.
A filet mignon on a flaming sword to you, sir!
