Blogging suicide

Yesterday I came across Chris McKinstry's suicide note on the web. Disturbing thing. Suddenly I feel sad about a complete stranger. Being able to read his last words at his blog actually touches me more than the death of much closer people.

too late.

Another interesting point is that the people reading the forum, where he crossposted his suicide note, tried to rescue him. Chris lived in Chile and people that probably never met him tried to contact the local authorities in a country several 1000 miles away…
The web clearly deforms the shape of the Monkeysphere.

suicide, blogosphere, monkeysphere
