goodbye, lilo

| No Comments

When I first started hanging out on Joi Ito's IRC channel, #joiito, one of the people who'd drop in on a regular basis was lilo. In real life, lilo was Rob Levin, founder of freenode--the IRC server network that #joiito was housed on.

Rob didn't just hang out in Joi's channel, of course. Every time I'd create or use a freenode IRC channel at a tech event, lilo would pop in and cheerfully greet friendly "faces" and help with technical problems.

I saw tonight, via AKMA's blog, the sad news that Rob died on September 16th.

I'll miss him. And I'll think of him every time I log into a freenode IRC channel.
