Life’s too short

Life’s too short, and JD’s death gives me some serious pause.

While I’ve never met him in person, we shared some of the same circles, and most certainly knew of each other, even though our interactions were never direct with one another.

His contributions to the messaging space of the Internet were already legendary before his death – and now ever more. He was clearly the calm voice I am still trying to find for myself, but which I’ve only ever found, if just temporarily, in the other professional space I inhabit.

Not since Abha Ahuja (Merit/NANOG) died in 2001, have I felt such a close, professional loss, and my thoughts, wishes and heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
