In this post, quoted from Eric Meyer, CSS expert nonpareil:
Searching For Mark PilgrimFollowed up with:
Just yesterday, I took a screenshot of the title page of Dive Into HTML5 to include in a presentation as a highly recommended resource. Now it’s gone. That site, along with all the other “Dive Into…” sites (Accessibility, Python, Greasemonkey, etc.) and addictionis.org, is returning an HTTP “410 Gone” message. Mark’s Github, Google+, Reddit, and Twitter accounts have all been deleted. And attempts to email him have been bounced back.
This is very reminiscent of Why the Lucky Stiff’s infosuicide, and it’s honestly shocking.
Mark Pilgrim is alive/annoyed we called the police. Please stand down and give the man privacy and space, and thanks everyone for caring.There really is no difference.
