by 'crossing over', i mean escaping out of the developer community to be seen by a larger audience.

so i fire up Outlook around noon and see that i've got a handful of hate emails. nonsense like 'Mac envy' and 'your article sucks'. ok, so somebody with juice must have linked /backRow. try to hit my own web site ... and its choking. check the usual suspect ... nope ... somebody else's death ray. check the blogs i'm subscribed too ... nope. write one of the people that sent me an interesting email and they give up Paul Thurrott's Internet Nexus. also here. yep ... that'll do it.

i've only had a handful of crossover articles, but have received nasty emails each time. what's up with that?
