An Aside about Uriel

It’s a break from the typical content on this site (of which more is forthcoming), but I would be remiss if I did not mention Uriel.

You may or may not have heard of Uriel, but he was an active participant around Plan 9- and Inferno-related things, most of which are detailed on his site. Certainly, recent entries in this blog have leaned heavily on (a site with lots of very good content, which takes its name from UNIX Style, or cat -v Considered Harmful). He also authored and contributed to a number of suckless software projects.

Although he could be abrasive (often intentionally trolling), he was very clever, helpful, and entertaining. I recommend reading through his site, which is powered, incidentally, by werc, a sensible and portable web framework that Uriel himself wrote in Plan 9’s rc shell and released into the public domain. His sites and software will be maintained by a few of his close friends.

He died recently at the age of 30, and will be missed.
