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 cat-v.org (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.
