Here’s a Person Calacanis OWES an Apology to!

GkyGrl is one of my favorite SQUIDOO lensmasters! Even with a very challenging disability, Diana turns out tons and tons of brilliant, courageous and witty content, for Squidoo, for the communities she cares about and can reach through web 2.0, and for anyone who needs a little compassion from a VERY BIG HEART.

She pours her heart and soul into her work and it just picks up her readers and, by the time they’re finished reading, she’s taken their breath away.

For a person like Diana to appreciate and make such excellent use of Squidoo as she does, tells me there is a great value in this platform that ‘internet marketing/ content guru wannabees’ like Calacanis will NEVER appreciate. Compared with this, the BEST you can do at Mahalo is dry, empty facts that mean NOTHING to you.

Seth Godin understands. Megan Casey understands. They’re doing their LEVEL, OUTSTANDING BEST to make someone like GkyGrl shine out and make her special and unique contribution to the human race and web 2.0. What a gift to all of us!

The fact that her content is priceless is NO REASON to withhold income sharing with her. Yes, the fact that the checks aren’t “six figures” doesn’t say ANYTHING about the value of what GkyGrl has contributed via the Squidoo platform. You, Calacanis, would even withhold THAT much from her, in favor of absorbing ALL the traffic, ads and income in favor of yourself and a project you’ll NEVER be able to do on your own.

No. We have nothing to fear from you. But, we do fear FOR you.

    Wow. Preach it, sister.

    And kudos to GkyGrl!

    And thanks to you as well, Margaret, for supporting others’ efforts with 110% of your own passion and compassion.
