R.I.P. Jesse Malthus
I’ve known jesse since he appeared on Kula. He was a good guy, a programmer, a founder of the rubyists group in sl, and he did interesting work. I understood that he had just nabbed a summer programming gig with a major consulting company… based on his work with libsl. He was doing great things for one so young and our world is less for his his loss.
jesse had land in kula along with many of hist builds, experiments, and friends. We will miss him. if anyone wants to build anything there in memorium, we’ve made his space.. malthusium into a temporary sandbox, which he always loved.
