GigaOm founder Om Malik had a heart attack last week, but now is thankfully recovering. He is only 41. This blogging thing is stressful (and the stogies don’t help either). It is always shocking when someone you know has a heart attack, but when you have as big a following as he does, those shock waves multiply.
On a personal note, Om and I wrote many stories together during our Business 2.0 days, and he is partnering with TechCrunch on the Crunchies. We need you back in the saddle, Om. Get well soon.
Update: (Arrington): Jesus Christ, Om. I’ve been sleeping all day with a cold/flu and I wake up to this news. This hits me pretty hard. You have to get better. Too many people love you.
