Stan's ordeal

I'm sure most, if not all, of you know who Stan Rogers is. He updated his blog on December 28th and gave more details about his situation. If you didn't catch the update, it's absolutely worth the read. It's a testament to the resiliency of the human spirit.

He has done an extensive amount of work with Javascript and web development, and there doesn't seem to be much that he doesn't know. He has contributed very, very heavily to the developerWorks Lotus forum (formerly Late last year, Stan had a meltdown and spent some time in a mental health facility, and he has been very open about that on his blog.

It's at times horrific, but I sincerely appreciate his willingness to share his experiences. When you blog there's always the fine line between telling people enough about your personal life so that you don't come across as a code-spewing robot, and telling people so much it makes them uncomfortable. Given the circumstances I think Stan has handled his situation beautifully and poetically.
