Never really got into blogging, but after learning of Ettore's passing today I was moved to read some of his friends' memories about him. I like the way people use blogs to connect with each other, and get to know each other (I also find it cool the way Planet Gnome aggregates lots of different blogs into one using RSS).

I never met Ettore myself, but I did trade a few emails with him when working on gnome-vim. I remember reading his blog back a couple of years ago when I was getting to know the names of people in the gnome community, and feeling like I got to know him a little bit.
