Autorin, Dozentin + Founder

Heather B. Armstrong, the creator and writer of the website and an Internet pioneer credited with the advent of the “mommy blogger,” has died of depression at age 47. She first rose to Internet notoriety in 2002 when her blog posts about her dot-com job got her fired from said job; she then became one of the earliest living memes, and getting fired because you bitched about certain aspects of your job online was turned into a verb: “dooced.”
