[Copied from a post on another list]

Danny Lewin, co-founder of Akamai technologies, was in one of the planes:


Danny was a buddy of mine, and many, many people at Akamai. We will all dearly miss him.

He was not just an executive at a big company. He honestly did drive our corporation and give us all a boost, emotionally, professionally. His loss will be felt profoundly, on a very personal level.

Of course, many people from all over the world will be feeling this type of loss today. I do not mean to trivialize their loss, just want to honor Danny's memory.

Sorry for the off-topic post.
