Hey, where'd Carl go? He's not at Freedonia. Nothing is.

I heard a rumor at SXSW that Carl would soon be making a disappearance from the Web, never to return again. It could have heard it directly from Carl himself, but I can't recall. Feeble brain!

Refering to himself in the third person, Jason uses the neutral pronoun "it", further reinforcing my impression that he is not a human after all, but some sort of alien from a planet where the native tongue is some subset of SGML.

Is the column in the Standard finished, too? That was my favorite thing.

Knowing the little that I know, I think a little respectful privacy is in order.

I'd say, he's a private individual and people should leave him alone if he wants to be left alone. He's not "The Carl." He's Carl and he obviously wants to be left alone for a while.

He's back! Huzzah!

Well, now that we know why he disappeared in the first place, "huzzah" doesn't seem quite right, but yes, I'm glad he's back too. Don't leave us, Carl.
