Armin Briegel’s 2019 Outlook

Tycho was the loveliest of humans. He was kind, he was the most giving person I’ve ever met, and he set new standards for what it means to be a host. I try to emulate so much of his attributes, but continue to come up short. Even though we’ve known about his health issues for years, and specifically that he had announced he wouldn’t be involved in MacSysAdmin as the “dictator” any more, I am as devastated about this as I’ve been about anyone I’ve lost in my adult life. My heart goes out to Patrick, Anna, and all of his family and circle of friends. We’ve all lost a great friend and may we keep him with us always.

Donate to 350.org in his honor.
