The honest earnestness of Diana Kimball, internet geek:

As it turns out, those early heroes of mine weren’t collages of favorites, but continuous and earnest personalities. They were treating the internet like a place to write letters, draw pictures, tell stories. It was a safe, gentle, honest place. I learned their rules. I still play by them. It’s old-fashioned, but it’s a game that I can believe in.

Her writing is passionate, idealistic, reflective, personal and fantastically geeky.

Some days, I feel like the only reason to have a blog is for the referrer logs. I find such wonderful treasures there.
