Jef Raskin

It is with considerable surprise and sadness that I heard of the passing of Jef Raskin this weekend. I wasn’t a friend: merely an admirer of his work and his appearances at the Hackers conference. I found his delight with model airplanes to be infectious and genuine, and his innovative ideas to be thought provoking. To all those whose life he played a more direct and personal role, you have my condolences.
