This week I found out Rick Simon died. I was fortunate to collaborate with him on open source work and a hackathon and was always impressed with his rare ability to be a positive force for change. Above is a picture of Rick presenting at the end the Gray Area Foundation hackathon.
There is an event on March 4 in memory of Rick in San Francisco. Another good man has left us.
