If all that happened to one of the greatest living programmer, its really hurting and I am seriously hurt!! Zed is an exceptionally great techei. The Author of the Mongrel Web Server who deserves to be honored with the salutes of all we guys who are running their business on the top of Rails by deploying the web applications on Mongrel with a pride.
Zed Shaw – The Man ranked #1 on WorkingWithRails. God!! Still hard to believe that the guys have treated him like this… For me(and I think for every human being) its quite natural to have respect for a person/company if I am benefiting out of his work. Moreover, the work is free to use!!
I respect Matz, Nobuyoshi, DHH, Zed, Jamis, Rick and all the great guys who writes/contributes plugins/snippets/libs for ruby/rails/mongrel as I am using Ruby/Rails/Mongrel for my benefits.
ZED, my hearty thanks to you for providing the Mongrel web server.
