We lost a great developer…

Sanaz Ahari just sent me a Facebook message that Steve Rider has passed away, he died from pre-leukemia on June 5. He was diagnosed just a year ago. I interviewed him back when I was a Microsoft employee and he was doing incredible work, both back then and then at iLike.com. He was one of the most innovative people I met at Microsoft and was behind early live.com efforts.

Add to last weekend’s tragic death of Rajeev Motwani, who was one of the early people involved in Google and a well respected Stanford Professor, and it just makes me sad.

Today my work is dedicated to both of them. They both improved my life with their work, I wish I could come up to that bar that they’ve set with their all-to-young lives.

  2. I went to college with Steve. He was a great guy and a talented programmer. He will be missed!

  3. I have grown up Catholic my whole life. I have been taught and learned a great deal about my faith. I knew a woman who saw and received messages from the Virgin Mary. I could see her as she spoke with her. Afterward she would write down the messages.
