Today I found out that open source community member, feminist, activist, and fucking awesome human being Nóirín Plunkett has died. I have no words for what we've lost in losing Nóirín; I think the open source community is going to keep running headfirst into that loss for years to come.

Nóirín, wherever you are now, I hope it's full of everything you would consider paradise. It's going to be a long fucking time before I stop looking for you at every conference I go to.

Aw, I'm sorry. There should be a term for the loss of a deeply respected colleague. Condolences, regardless.

What?!? Oh no. That's awful.

Oh Nóirín.
