It was really great to meet you and thank you for being generous in regards to my Jesus-in-a-taco-chip story. (If you have no idea what that means, my point is, thanks for being awesome.) You handle overwhelmed like a pro.

Tuesday night I popped in a Justice League Unlimited DVD to appreciate his work and was struck by a short exchange between Warhawk and Green Lantern. Warhawk: What are you supposed to do when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders? Green Lantern: Plant your feet. Such a great bit of writing, one of many Dwayne McDuffie gave us, and I'm sad there won't be any more. My condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues.

Thanks for writing this, Wil. I found a site posting a ton of my stuff last night. Even when the content is published by a big corporate behemoth (and in publishing, authors usually license specific rights to their work rather than sell them outright), it's still stealing from the author. In addition to an upfront advance payment, I get credited a percentage of every copy of my book sold. When that percentage adds up to equal the advance payment, then the percentage of every additional sale goes to me. (And I get to keep the advance payment no matter what.) It's a different business model than self-publishing (and we can debate its advantages and disadvantages), but when people take my book without paying for it, they're still stealing from me. Generally, I think the people who post stuff without payment or permission are probably dicks, while the people who download them probably aren't. But I wish they'd realize their actions directly impact my ability to make a living.
