I never usually put up about other tech journalists but this is type of crucial. A terrific man, James Kendrick, started JKOnTheRun, 1 of the to start with tech weblogs concentrating on cell devices. In the dim times of the early naughts he was a dazzling spot on the prairie, a star in the firmament. Now he’s ill.

James was a freelancer and his perform a short while ago dried up. To include insult to damage, he’s struggling from a critical heart problem that place him in the clinic for two months and now dumped him into a wheelchair. His web site, when privately owned, was bought by Gigaom and died when that web site was, in turn, bought.

He writes:
