This is sad news - and quite unexpected given he was still quite young. Do we know any more details of the circumstances of his death?


I knew Ivor at LCH where he evangelised Perl and was very friendly and helpful with answers to questions. I know he had done some NLP training and was visibily happier as a result.


I can't make it up to Manchester but I would be quite receptive to going along to a London pub or party for a night in his memory.
