Bookmarked: Daniel Kaminsky, Internet Security Savior, Dies at 42 nyti.ms/32T90hb “It meant everything in the digital universe was going to have to get patched.”

@edsu
La necrológica de Mr. Kaminsky, Salvador de internet, es impresionante. Propia de una sociedad muy educada.

Silicon Valley honra a uno de sus héroes. Muerto por complicaciones de su diabetes.

Es además un alma buena. No solo te salvó a vos (literalmente), sino que su empatía y bonomía es encomiable:

"Mr. Kaminsky’s empathy extended to his many side projects. When a friend struggled with color blindness, he developed the DanKam, a mobile app that uses a phone’s camera to decipher colors otherwise indecipherable to the colorblind. When his grandmother Raia Maurer, now 97, experienced hearing loss, he refocused his efforts on hearing-aid technology. And when his aunt, a dermatologist, told him she could no longer treat under-resourced patients for AIDS-related skin diseases, some potentially fatal, in sub-Saharan Africa and Rohingya refugee camps, Mr. Kaminsky helped develop telemedicine tools for the National Institutes of Health and AMPATH, a health project led by Indiana University that he sought to bring to San Francisco during the coronavirus pandemic."

Vale la pena saber su historia.
