I consider Dave Winer to be a friend even though we have only met once. And we met long before we become friends via the net. While we don’t talk regularly like he does with so many others, we have mutual friends and he has referred a couple of ’em to me and I to him (regarding several different things, none of them really computer related). He is a fabulous guy that is enthusiastic about eveything he does… and tomorrow is his birthday. He turns 50! Well happy birthday Dave, I hope you have many, many more!
