How the Internet Saved the Home of Blogging Pioneer Noah Grey

Slashdot (only feels appropriate to link to Slashdot for this one):

At the end of the year 2000, Noah Grey created the free and open-source blogging software Greymatter (now maintained by a community of users). Wil Wheaton’s new book describes it as “the original, primordial blogging platform. Blogs look like they do... because Noah Grey did it first.”

Three days ago Noah Grey created a GoFundMe campaign headlined “I am losing my home in four days.”

If you’re looking for a feel-good story — and who isn’t today? — this is it. Grey Matter was incredibly influential (not to mention cleverly named). The GoFundMe campaign is still going, too, if you’d like to pitch in.
