This has been a pretty rough week for those around me. I've had co-workers lose their parents, friends lose their pets, and other friends lose their jobs and relationships. Sickness and strife abound.
(Not to mention the deadly earthquake in China this morning. The universe definitely has a mean on right now.)
Into that mix comes the untimely death of one of the brightest stars in the AFOL community - Nate 'nnenn' Nielson. The Brothers Brick have a nice eulogy up for him - it speaks more eloquently than I can.
I didn't have much direct interaction with nnenn - but I was still inspired by his work and will miss his presence in the online community.
