Fragile

In this Handshake 2.0 post, Henry Bass, President of Automation Creations, Inc., wrote this about the United States’s assistance to Iraq:  "It’s a fragile improvement."

I couldn’t help but think of Henry Bass’s use of the word "fragile" when I learned a fellow blogger, who began a blog about the same time as I began Inside VT KnowledgeWorks, lost his blog.

The domain registration company from which he had purchased his domain name sold it.

When one types into a browser his former URL, one finds not his well-regarded, top-listed blog, but "This Web site is coming soon."

From months and months of garnering the merit of links from other sites to his site for its excellent content, the links are now all broken.

The blogger uses TypePad, so the content of his blog is still stored on TypePad’s servers.  His work, like a sage on a mountain top, can be reached, but you have to know the way.

What have I learned about links?

Over fragile links, I treasure the golden links in my relationships with my family, friends, and colleagues.
