In memoriam: Linux evangelist and editor Joe Barr

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on July 13, 2008 10:05 PM
I met Joe at a company meeting this past spring and will remember him always with admiration. In the middle of a long, otherwise totally corporate, day Joe wanted to say something about the limits of intellect and the meaning of spirit. He quietly offered a rendition of ee cummings to those within earshot, and when urged by those around him, repeated the poem for the room of 80. It gently brought the whole group to silence and then applause. We and the world will miss Joe. On behalf of our company we share heartfelt sympathy with Joe's family, friends, and colleagues.
