    Dave: Michael, why do you love what you do?

    Michael: The web is the most personally empowering and sweeping change we’ve ever seen in our lives. I am thrilled by it and passionate about it.

I’m glad he did, because before I could thank him for his reply, he went and got on the front page of Copyblogger. Now he’s too busy to answer my emails (and by too busy, I mean he still answers them just fine). Snarkyness aside, here’s the details of the drive-by interview …
