9fans and Inferno fans:
It is with great sadness that I report the death of one of our own.
Michael Baldwin, who worked at the labs for some time and later at Vita
Nuova, died last night after a brief battle against cancer. Michael was,
perhaps, most famous in our community for writing the `pq' implicit
relational database that comes with the plan9 distribution. He was also
a terrific guy in real life, and will be sorely missed.
Arrangements are still pending, but you can find the preliminaries in
the forwarded message below. If you'd like more information, please send
me email directly and I'll try to keep you informed as I find out details
(I plan on sending another email to 9fans and infero-list once things are
- Dan C.
