Bloggers Up in Arms Over Closure of Weblogs.com: "Blogging pioneer Dave Winer has shut down the Weblogs of about 3,000 users on weblogs.com, one of the first blogging sites.
"This is not a company here, this is a person," Winer said in the message. "To expect company-type service, well, that's just not going to happen." He said an imminent move and ongoing heart problems played a part in his decision to all but abandon the site. "There are other things on my mind, believe it or not," he wrote in a Wednesday post on Scripting News, one of the Internet's longest-running blogs."
