Ettore’s death

I don’t know why I got so sad in the news of Ettore’s death last night (Ximian employee, Gnome developer).

We had a small email exchange in the past about stuff, but that was all. I didn’t know the man. But I got deeply moved and sadden by his death for some reason. I remember seeing pictures of him in many Gnome events, giving speeches or having fun in the bar with the rest of the gnomers. I guess that by seeing normal people in pictures and read their emails on lists and elsewhere, they grow on you after a while, even if you never knew them personally.
