Sad to hear that Heather Armstrong (a.k.a. Dooce to a couple of generations of early bloggers) has taken her own life:

[Quoting from the New York Times] Heather Armstrong, an explosively popular web writer and entrepreneur who, with her website Dooce, was hailed as the queen of the so-called mommy bloggers for giving millions of readers intimate glimpses of her joys and challenges in parenthood and marriage, as well as of her harrowing struggles with depression, died on Tuesday at her home in Salt Lake City. She was 47.
