In memoriam - Yariv Alter Fin 1968-2007

This Inter-Face was made by our friend Yariv Alter Fin, who sadly ended his life last week in Tel Aviv. Yariv was a wonderful digital artist and a giving person. Yariv, you are missed.

The news came at me last week like a misguided arrow. "Somehow this can't be!" I keep saying to myself. And in my selfishness also keep thinking, "Why, oh why wasn't I better at keeping in touch with him?"
Now I would like some answers. I mean the first shock is over, but is anybody wondering why he took his life in TelAviv? Or even how? Maybe I'm being insensitive now, but this is after crying my eyes out for almost a week.
Anyway. As far as passwords, etc... has anyone contacted Dominique? Might be a place to start. Otherwise I don't know what other next of kin might be around to officiate inheriting his digital existence.
Okay. Nuff sed.
Yariv, you will not be forgotten!

Regarding the 'digital identity'... At the memorial meeting yesterday, plans have been announced for a foundation to preserve his works online.. first step is to find all the passwords.

His choice, which is a deeply personal right, although free will is overestimated.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
