PostNuke Mourns Loss of Lead Developer

Date: 2002-06-23 11:57:23

Greg Allan a.k.a. Adam_Baum, the lead core developer and one of the four
founding members of the PostNuke CMS Development Project passed away from
injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. The accident occurred June 16,
2002 near his home in Meaford, Ontario in Canada.

Greg Allan was a humble and personable man who always downplayed his
considerable skills. He was a self-taught coder who contributed to every
aspect of development from cleaning up other people's code to writing new and
innovative software.

Greg was an invaluable asset to the PostNuke development team, and a dear and
trusted friend and co-worker to people on every continent. Through this first
year of PostNuke's existence, Greg's personable and giving nature has been a
guiding light and inspiration to many people and projects that have shaped the
development landscape and social personality of the PostNuke project.

Surviving Greg are his parents, Bob and Leone Allan, his brother Brian, his
girlfriend Kim along with her two children Kristin and Kassandra, his dog
Chevy, and trusted friends Dean and Natasha.

In memory of Greg and out of respect for all those mourning his passing, all
PostNuke development and official support activity has been suspended for one
week. We urge all those using PostNuke to post a copy of this article on each
of your PostNuke-Powered sites to commemorate the memory and accomplishments
of Adam_Baum. Please refer your condolences and comments to the memorial
article on postnuke.com.

For funeral arrangements, flower delivery information and memorial
contributions, please email steve@grape.dyndns.org.

On behalf of the PostNuke Development Team,

Steve MacGregor (grape)
