Many readers had the pleasure of meeting Om Malik when he came into town to speak at the ExecutiveBiz Web 2.0 Conference. I’ve known Om for a few years, and it is heartening to see that he is on the mend after suffering a heart attack on December 28th.
Few bloggers can match Om’s ability to cut through the trends, companies and people driving technology and business, and then disarm the topic in a way readers can consume enthusiastically.
It doesn’t surprise me that Om will look to make the best of the situation with some healthy life adjustments, always a challenge for someone who follows a news cycle that never ends. Om has served as inspiration for many industry bloggers, and while some doctor-ordered rest might be hard to swallow, I think he will emerge better and stronger for it in the long run.
Best wishes on a speedy recovery from the ExecutiveBiz team.
