Thank you for this post. Adam’s fiancée spotted it and sent it over first thing this morning.
When we started Versioning, we were hoping to capture a little bit of the web’s essence, wrap up the crazy amount of news that came through every day, and offer something that a few people might like.
Adam did way more than that. Thousands of people around the world have now “met” him and care not only for his work, but for _him_, which makes it so much harder to announce news like this.
He is, indeed, a real person, and I bet you really would like to chat with him, have a coffee. I can’t wait to be able to do that again.
