Happy Birthday Dave Winer

I don’t really know Dave Winer, but in the world of blogs, everyone feels like they know the people they read and I read Dave’s blog everyday and I listen to his Morning Coffee Notes podcast.

Dave turns 50 today and he’s asked for links rather than presents. I’m glad to do that for him, but I also have a little extra. Doc Searls says some really nice stuff about Dave on his own blog today. But it’s also nice to hear what people say about you when it’s not your birthday and you’re not even there to listen. So I give you a clip from Doc’s presentation to LesBlogs last week where he summed up Dave’s contribution so far – with a stirring backdrop from Clara Butt way back in 1912 and chanting at the end from Euan Semple, Anu Gupta and Doc again.

Happy Birthday Dave!
