Dave Winer entdeckt einen alten Verwandten:

German author Arno Schmidt was my great-uncle on my mother’s side, my maternal grandmother’s younger brother. I never met him, but when he died in 1979, my mother ended up with a collection of his writing. We want to donate these writings to a library for long-term preservation.

I also have a taped interview with Lucy Schmidt Kiesler, my grandmother, done by a Schmidt biographer, which I’m going to digitize and then release as an MP3 podcast.
