Doc Searls' Laptop Stolen

Dave Aiello wrote, "Doc Searls, the Senior Editor of Linux Journal, reported that his laptop was stolen on Saturday. Searls said, 'Pretty much my whole life was on it. I'm not even sure what to do next....' You're telling me. I'd be dead if this happened to me (figuratively)."

"I wrote to Doc and expressed my sympathy. He was the only prominent weblogger to pick up my story about astronaut Mike Mullane's book and the eerie way Mullane predicted the disintegration of a shuttle due to reentry problems. I wish I could do more for him, but all I could do was say:"


I'm truly sorry to hear about your laptop. This made me go out and get a copy of Arkeia Light for the server in my office and start backing up my laptop....

Dave continued, "Let this be a lesson for the rest of us. Get with the program and back up your digital life. I'm humble enough to say that I have a problem with this sort of disaster preparedness, and I'll do what I can to mitigate the problem before the end of the week."
