Rob “lilo” Levin dies in bike-car collision

freenode News Thursday 16 September 2006 at 10:58:00:

On the 12th September Rob Levin, known to many as Freenode’s lilo, was hit by a car while riding his bike. He suffered head injuries and was in a coma. Rob was being treated at the Neuro Trauma Intensive Care Unit at a local hospital in Houston, Texas where he passed away in on Sept 16th.

Our thoughts are with Rob and his family, and we ask that you respect their privacy during this difficult time.

For many years, ibiblio hosted the FreeNode pages. Any time we were off the net between here and Houston, we could be sure that we’d be hearing from Rob. He was completely dedicated to keeping communications amongst Free Software developers open and available. His death at age 50 is untimely and saddening.

UPDATE: A quiet channel as been setup at #lilo-memorial for reverent idling and #lilo-mourning for discussion.

Banksy is the new Beatles

The Revolution will not be terrorized

After watching Banksy’s expliots, most recently the Paris Hilton-ized version of the Barbie Liberation Front intervention, from across the ocean, I now get to enjoy them coming from across the continent.

Barely Legal in LA gets serious press in NYC and elsewhere.

Go Banksy!
