About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

As I wear so many hats, I find it being necessary to somewhere express my personal view on things. This is the location where that happens. Postings on this blog, or at Facebook, Twitter etc, falls under this policy.

The views expressed on this post are mine and do not necessarily reflect the views of Netnod or any other of the organisations I have connections to.

One of my oldest friends on the Internet passed away quietly night between Saturday and Sunday. We have known each other since 1992 or even earlier when Swedish Radio contacted us at Royal Institute of Technology to discuss email deployment.

Kenta was one of the few persons in the world that although he was misunderstood now and then (partly due to dyslexia) was one of the most loyal persons there is. And not a single piece of him was evil or had evil thoughts.

Me and people on mailing lists in Sweden where Kenta has been active the last 20 years or so already miss him — deeply. Even people that say they have never met him in person.

I have met him. Thousands of times, if not more. He always helped people when he could.

I am missing you already Kenta.

So much.
