I found out today that my old Internet friend John Andrews, aka jand, died a couple of weeks ago. Apparently he was attacked and beaten outside of a pub in his town in East Anglia, England, and presumably died a few days later from it — I don’t know the exact cause of death, and there’s some extremely dodgy things about the whole situation that I’d rather not get into.
I never met jand, but we corresponded and hung out on a lot of the same design message boards back in the day. He seemed like a good guy and he was definitely a smart guy, and he’ll be missed by the community.
Rest in peace, mate.
