From around the twittersphere, blogosphere, etc  this weekend:

Loren Feldman: “People like the puppet more than you because he is more real than you
are. More honest than you are, smarter than you are. More human than
you are. People want the Shel puppet to win. The same can’t be said for
you my friend.”

Dave Winer: “They let Shel Israel off the hook.
He gets his name back, the puppet is retired. The mock trial they were
planning for the TechCrunch summer party, that I learned of this
morning, is cancelled.”

Dave Winer: “All I could think about is how mean this community had become.”

Susan sez: Mean, indeed.
