A great hacker, and he will be missed.

grr to HTML stripping. ;(
All you need are:
- an open mind,
- a pure heart,
- good intentions.
And everything else will take care of itself.
Awww, heck. I'm sorry to say I had to read the hack-a-day article to know who he was by his accomplishments- some of which have inspired me in the past.
A sad loss, and also scary to see someone pass away of a heart attack at such a young age (young to me, at least).
Thanks for the inspirations, Mark.
Godspeed with hardware acceleration.
And now a notice is posted at his website, after being hacked by friendly peoples: Death notice
he was a really creative person!
It always bothers me when I hear of someone a few months younger then me (and probably in better shape) dying of something like a heart attack. (I guess this has been noted before, but... still. When you're young and fresh and stupid death via *any* means is just a remote and abstract thought, let alone the possibility of dying from some "old person" disease like a heart attack. Then suddenly you realize that you qualify as one of those "old people". Sort of humbling, really, to realize that overcomplicated hunk of meat you're made of really could just malfunction at any time, well before you're ready to be "done" with life.)
Anyway. It is indeed quite sad, but at least it looks like he enjoyed his life for at least some of the time he was allotted to lead it. That's about the best any of us can hope for.
