How friends help friends on the Internet: The Ross Greenberg Story

David Strom – How friends help friends on the Internet: The Ross Greenberg Story:

"Then, early this year, the marriage crumbled, and he found himself in a nursing home, confined to a motorized wheelchair, his computer left behind, without even a phone of his own. While his mind was still clear, he was cut off from his livelihood, his IPG colleagues, the internet, the world.

Ross’s plight came to the attention of the IPG when, through the generosity of Rebecca, the home’s administrator, he painstakingly pecked out a brief e-mail, using one finger, to a fellow IPG member."
