This hasn't hit slashdot yet.
The news has come through that Werner Icking died on 8 Feb 2001
while riding home on his bike:
His home page is here:
He has had a very large amount of involvement in
free music software for linux:
Apart from being very sad that someone can make such a huge
contribution to the free software world and then be killed
in a bicycle accident, it raises the issue of what happens to
copyright etc. when an author dies.
At least his software will be a memorial, I guess.
By the way, I used to live in Bonn too.
He was in Sankt Augustin, a suburb on the other side of the Rhein.
The photo on the newspaper site shows woodland very similar to
woodland that I used to walk along.
