Memorial for Rich Gold
We just got back from a combination Buddhist-Jewish memorial service for Rich Gold, a prolific friend and colleague who passed away suddenly last week. Read about him, or read talks on art, collaboration, computers, and knowledge, manifestoes or the draft of his forthcoming nook The Plenitude.
I first knew Rich by reputation from running Little Computer People on the Commodore 64; it was the forerunner of The Sims. Later, I knew Rich at Xerox and PARC, where he spent a number of recent years. We will all miss him.
Go read the book.
