SourceForge founder Timothy Perdue Died

learned today, that a early figure of PHP coder Timothy Dean Perdue (1974 〜 2011), died, of cancer. He was a founder in {SourceForge.net, GForge.com, PHPBuilder.com}.

I remember him only because i cited one of his article that criticizes MySQL back in 2002: The Unix Pestilence: MySql.

that's the old days. When MySQL was the rage flying about on slashdot, similar to today how stuff fly in hackernews, reddit, etc. Today it's NoSQL. Does anyone remember that XML is the future and there should be pure XML databases or OOP databases?

Here's photos of him and his family Source www.perdue.net.

thanks to meowcat for news.
