  1. No matter what you thought of anna nicole, this was a woman who was in desperate need of help that no person in her life was able to give her. with Daniel gone, she felt she could not go on, even to be the mother of her beautiful daughter. I hope they figure out who is the father of that baby is, so she too get on with her life. Howard Stern needs to step up and do the right thing and give the baby to her father. stop looking at the possible money, and look at a life gone, and a life just starting.

  3. Yeah, I came in here to say how crass that was. Thought someone like you might have an ounce of compassion. Guess not.

  5. Kudos to Paul and the others who called Robert out on this entry. It is just plain TACKY.

    Hopefully, a paternity test will at least resolve which loser the kid is stuck with. The rest of the sordid affair will be in the courts for a decade at least.

  7. @9,

    Finally, a lucid comment.

    Robert, I know this story is all over the news, but did you really have to post something about it?

    Stick to tech and cute kittens, dude.

    Anything that smacks of Hollywood should stay off a tech blog unless it’s tech-related somehow. It’s your blog, but I’m seeing you diversify too much lately…

    Politics, kittens (OK), Hollywood celebs, etc.

    Let’s stick to the cogent issues like why Windows Vista isn’t going to sell nearly as well as XP.

  9. Don (#10): Maybe I’m suffering from irony deficiency on this one, but to me it just feels like we’re seeing a story run and run for its entertainment value without anybody actually saying “man, this is just sick”. To me, posting this link is about as funny as posting a picture of her dead body. It just has absolutely no sense of respect about it.

    Sure, the “potential fathers” are all douche bags and deserve to be humiliated, but I just wonder if there is no way we can do it out of a sense of outrage for a child being harmed than through trivialising it all to a bit of a giggle.

    Like I say though, maybe it’s just an irony deficiency on my part this evening. I hope you’re right.

  11. >>by a bunch of money-grabbing, publicity-seeking, self-absorbed bastards.

    I think the joke is on them, not the baby.

  13. Yeah, fricking hilarious. I think it’s just soooooo funny that a woman dies before reaching her 40th birthday, and a motherless child is left behind to be fought over by a bunch of money-grabbing, publicity-seeking, self-absorbed bastards. Absolutely *hilarious*.

    Dude, it’s not link bait. It’s just sad. I know you and everybody else reading this blog couldn’t give a shit about the kid, it’s not yours so hey-ho, that to you it’s just some crap in the paper or on the TV about somebody you don’t care about, but FFS, will somebody, somewhere think about the fact a real human being is involved here and you’re all having fun at their expense?

    Scoble, would you be proud if you ever met the kid one day and they said “Oh, yeah, I read that article you posted linking to that thing about me…”? Would you look them in the eye and say “Yeah man, hilarious wasn’t it?” as you slapped them on the back and had a good old giggle about it?

    Of course, you’ll never meet the kid, so it doesn’t matter, huh? True, true… with all this stuff kicking around, I would be surprised if they made it to 14 without killing themselves, so this is all just hypothetical. Well done everybody, well done…

  15. The combination of TV/film celebs and Internet personalities makes me vaguely uncomfortable. I didn’t know Anna made it a habit to travel in Web2.0 circles.

  17. Does Maryam know about this? Or is this one of those plots of your’s to take over the internet and make us all smarter (or is that smrter?).
