15 Years ago today….

... we lost Jon.
Given the number of young people in the community who, last year,
said "Who?", maybe its time to stop the reminders.

Given the impact of the person, and the philosophy he ingrained in the
design of the Internet, any hint that people are beginning to forget
should motivate more frequent reminders, or tutorials, or entry quizes,
or something.

My own acquaintance with Jon was slight, but I can see his foundation
in things I care about.


due to pain, people's inclination to talk about {jon, abha, itojun} may
be somewhat inversely proportional to their proximity to them.


I hope someday I will be remembered and loved by as many people as Jon. He
sounds like a very special person.
