RIP David Foster Wallace

19 09 2008

I just found out that genius writer and thinker David Foster Wallace hanged himself earlier this week.  He was a real inspiration to me and I am very sad to see him go, especially at such a young age.  He is survived by his wife.  In memoriam, here is a wonderful commencement speech he gave a couple years ago.  David, your influence and your way of seeing the world will be missed.
