On Wednesday Alex Mills, a coworker of mine at Automattic, died of leukemia.
One of the drawbacks of working for a distributed company is that you don’t interact with people as directly as you might otherwise. I recall that Alex added me to the
#oregon Slack channel shortly after I joined the company, introducing me to colleagues that live nearby. I regret that I never met him face-to-face.
I extend my deepest sympathies to his family & loved ones.
