#205: A Protocol For Dying with Pieter Hintjens

June 3, 2016 at 8:00PM • 1 hour 56 minutes

This show is, and forever will be, a very special show for us. In this show we talked with Pieter Hintjens, creator of ZeroMQ and The Collective Code Construction Contract (C4), writer of many books and protocols, as well as a developer with decades of building software and communities -- someone who has given so much, and continues to give - even up until the time he is planning for his death.

Pieter is terminally ill with a metastasis of bile duct cancer, in both lungs. But rather than listen to this show with sadness, listen with a happy heart and let's celebrate Pieter's life, and what he has accomplished.

Thank you Pieter from the bottom of our hearts for your time on this show and for all that you are. You are loved by us my friend.
