One side effect of having been on the Internet for a long time is that there are a lot of people you’re passingly familiar with. I subscribed to Phil Agre’s Red Rock Eater mailing list well over a decade ago, and found it an incredible source of interesting stuff in the pre-blog era. Today on Twitter I learned that he has been missing for over a year. NPR has an article on his disappearance. It’s disconcerting. I hope he’s well.
