Support for Larry Mahnken

From Mr. Mahnken’s blog:

My apartment burned down at about 2am this morning. I’m currently homeless.

So, obviously, I’ll be out of comission for the forseeable future.

Very unfortunate. He has a PayPal button at the top left of his blog, so if you’re a reader/know of him, this would be a good time to do it. I will be (PayPal is being a bit funky for me right now, so if I don’t do it now, I’ll be doing it soon). Every little bit will mean something.

Managing online communities since 2000, I publish a collective of websites known as the iFroggy Network. I wrote the book Managing Online Forums and, as a public speaker, have presented for organizations like CNN, institutions like Australian National University and conferences like SXSW. More about me.

Just wanted to say thanks for being one of the many that got the word out there. Thanks to everyone's generousity, not only will my brother be able to be back on his own really soon, he may even be able to finally start turning his luck around.
I think the outpouring of concern he got meant more to him then any money sent his way.

That's excellent. Glad to help.

Thank you for stopping by!
