Reliable Multicast and 9/11

I managed to avoid most of the maudlin moaning and jingoistic screaming that took over the media last weekend for the 10th anniversary of 9/11. But I couldn't help thinking about Phil Rosenzweig, who was on AA 11. He was a great guy and a valued coworker. He worked at Sun on the east coast, so I didn't get to see him much, but we traded a fair amount of email. He was a major force behind the Java Reliable Multicast API - that work took a huge hit when his plane hit the world trade center. He is missed.

We built a little memorial to him at the Sun campus in Menlo Park. It's now the new Facebook campus. So, folks at Facebook: take care of it and think of Phil as you pass by.
