Goodbye, Dan —

A friend of mine drowned on Sunday. His name was always “Dankaye” to me, but in fact it is Dan Kivel. He was in his mid-30’s. I am mentioning this because my weblog has a good page ranking, and mentioning anything here adds things to the search engines quickly. There is a site for him at, which has photos, archives, and some audio he recorded for my notacon radio project both this year and last.

I am very sad to know he’s not going to record another one. But we have 9 hours of him being himself, and that’s more than most people get of someone they knew and cared about.

    Damn, I just found out about this and I was just listening to Dan’s Rubicon 5 speech today. It’s a sad moment, I must say myself.
