I read that a couple of days ago. For me, it was more guilt-inducing than inspirational.

He's got 100X more talent/skill than I do, yet he's having to sell his one body and three lenses for food, rent, etc. Meanwhile, I'm sitting here with all this equipment he could use far better than I can.

Sort of makes you think "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" may not be such a bad approach.
Walter: Were you listening to The Dude's story? Donny: I was bowling. Walter: So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know...

I don't want to agree with that ... coz I don't want to give away my gear bcoz someone else is more talented, even if it "may not be such a bad approach" ;D

Excellent picture, interesting story and now he has some equipment again.
Sad thing to hear that even a talented person like him had to struggle.....
