[bksvol-discuss] Re: Extremely sad news to the Bookshare.org community

Gustavo once posted a bit about himself on the list.  He said he did not 
capitalize his name, and did not capitalize I when speaking of himself.  I 
have thought a lot about that, and there is logic in it.  Capitalizing one's 
name and the first person pronoun implies self-importance.  We do not 
capitalize the word "you", even when speaking of a specific person.  So his 
legacy to me is not to take myself too seriously.

still feel it.

It's been days, and I'm still shocked.  No more Gustavo?  That can't be
right.
I always remember what Gustavo used to say about rejections, the cryptic,
Kafkaesque, "Your submission is not going well."  He even once put up a
message with a couple pages from the relevant Kafka story.  I could just
picture some poor submitter being dragged off to the gulag.  I think of it
every time I see that rejection page.
Goodbye, Gustavo.  You are missed.

Tracy
