Some of you might know him on the west coast. He worked for Apple fixing/debugging System 7.5.X and attended Cal Tech. He was an activist for the mentally ill and homeless. He was openly bisexual and open about his schizoaffective disorder. His Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/repeatiblehairstyle?sk=wall&fref=gs&dti=2315152128&hc_location=group_dialog [facebook.com]

I had helped him with his project Soggy Jobs: http://soggy.jobs/ [soggy.jobs] which is unfinished. It was his project he needed a business model for.

He was on CNN about the taking away of tax credit from software engineers: https://youtu.be/VhLV7jydPJ8 [youtu.be]

His website is here: http://www.warplife.com/ [warplife.com]

He was a member here at Hacker News.

He had serious physical illnesses that made him suffer and he took his own life.

I was an online friend of his, and I too suffer from schizoaffective disorder. http://www.warplife.com/mdc/books/schizoaffective-disorder/ [warplife.com]

His wish was not to be forgotten to be remembered through his works. To at least have a Wikipedia article written on him or some other Wiki. Wikipedia named him non-notable about ten years ago. But if you met him, he'd always show you respect and even if he disagreed with you he was nice about it.
