The amazing Pieter Hintjens is not well. He's contributed a lot to the open-source community, notably to the AMQP protocol (which underpins RabbitMQ) and to ZeroMQ. He's talked about his state in a blog called A Protocol for Dying. If you're a fan, perhaps now's your chance to let him know. If you're not a fan, then perhaps you could investigate some of his work? He leads the ZeroMQ project, wrote a few books, and did a lot of great videos. I really liked this one from 2015's Craft Conf. I'll be at Craft Conf (starting today, actually) this year and I'll be thinking of Pieter.
