Unfortunately, the Bidinotto blog is no more. His host, Journalspace, went down and all the posts are gone. Rather than having hundreds of links going to a page that says "Hello World" I have removed the links to the blog and took out the rss feeds that had no comments.

Hopefully, he will start blogging again, but for now he freelancing as Robert the Writer. Econot is still up and he has written in the Atlasphere also.
