R.I.P. Greg (Animalfarm) Forums have lost a good one
Posted 21 January 2012 - 03:47 PM
For those that don't know who he is, he is a major contributor, the man behind a lot of the self-help 'sticky' threads. He is one of the reasons the forums, particularly the EPI forums, are such a freindly and fun place.
Perhaps others could write a better testimonial.
The forums have had a big loss. We owe a big debt to him for making these forums what they are.

"Where cultural production, at least musically, was full of possibilities by virtue of being able to freely appropriate from the musical past, to make new combinations, and thus new meanings. The story demonstrates that a society, ‘free to borrow and build upon the past is culturally richer than a controlled one.’" - Lawrence Lessig

he was not only grateful, but wrote a private message, thanking me/us, for thinking of him!
As ill, as he was, he took the time, and effort, to do that, because that's just how he was!
My condolences, and best wishes, to Pia, as well!
