I woke up this morning to find a note from my good friend Magz, who apparently has titanium coated brass balls, telling me he seeded the archive I had kept over my time on Newsvine. It contained things such as articles I was proud of, as well as complete records of various storms I had weathered. I don’t know how long the seed lasted, but it was collapsed before I even read his note. The title I’m using here is the one Magz used on Newsvine.
"The thing that always struck me about DPM’s writing was that for someone who wrote so many words, he was a very efficient writer – didn’t stray from topics with any frequency. I remember talking with Viki Babbles Gonia about the Vine’s history and how, during an organized prank where Viners wrote for each other, whoever wrote for Dennis typed something dismissing the efforts of new Viners and that caused the most drama because that was completely the opposite of his experience on the Vine.
In a roundabout way, I owe Dennis my job. I’ll miss him." ~~ Newsvine Moderator Tyler Adams
