After having been hacked, destroyed, vandalized, Via D* is back. Somewhat I have decided not to give up. I’d be lying to say, however, that I have not been affected by those acts of violence. Indeed, over the last few years since I started blogging, I am truly wondering if the rule of the mob has not replaced the “wisdom of the crowd”. The mere fact that I am bringing this blog back on line, if only for the simple pleasure of having a space to share a few of my thoughts, means I still trust that good will prevail.
