RIP James Kim

One of the original TechTV guys is no more. James Kim's body was found today in Oregon, where he had died seeking help for his family who had become stranded on a snowbound road.

His wife Kati and two daughters Penelope and Sabine were found safely.

My thoughts go with the survivors. It's interesting how more than just geeks feel a loss about this death. It seemed like the news began following this more closely when the rest of the family was found. To Michaela Pereira's credit, she had been plugging this story all week on the KTLA Morning Show, before everyone but the geek community had heard about this story.

He died valiantly trying to find help for the ones he loved. I suppose that is not a bad way to die.
