The Nathan Mystery
There have been a number of people who have been inquiring about the absence of Fort Wayne Observed from the blogosphere. There have been a number of people who have been inquiring about the absence of Nathan Gotsch from the blogging scene.
A lot of those inquiries have come from people who, like me, have received encouragement, advice and counsel in embarking on weblogs.* Some of the other inquiries have come from people who wonder if the absence is related to the Jeff Fraser imbroglio.
I have responded to the few phone inquiries. I have not responded to all of the email inquiries. The fact is, I don't know. I didn't want to respond to the emails until I knew something.
All I know right now is - he's alive. And I didn't know that until today. If one does a Google BlogSearch it will show that he did compose this message 15 hours ago - "Unfortunately I can't discuss why the blog has been unavailable at this time."
You would also learn that from a visit over to Fort Wayne Indiana, etc. where there is speculation over how the absence may be related to the posting of a purported version of "Carroll (The Book). AWB hit a few keys and looked at the source code. (You can do that, too, folks. Hint: it involves a right click on your mouse).

Where is Fort Wayne Observed. Nathan we want you back.
Could that ballsy move to post pages of "that book" be the end of FWO? Jeff Fraser did make a deal with NACS that included a *gag* order on Carroll: the Book, and Nathan did post the entire book. Can they yank him for that?
