Datamancer out

RIP, Richard Nagy, Datamancer, has died, seemingly in a car accident in California.
(Someone said recently: "Every year we postpone self-driven cars, thousands more die.")

Way too young.
I considered him a friend, and a working genius.
I was one of the few lucky enough to get one of his works while time was.

(I even made it work with an iPad!)

Update: I'm happy to see that he managed to sell the big project, The Clacker. I'd heard that the eBay auction didn't work. It would have been sad if he'd not been able to sell it after years of work.

If he'd been 95, would you have said "It's about time"?

If God existed, I'd almost believe he snuffed this guy out so he'd stop making that shit.
