Michael Tsao, deceased

I came across the following ominous search term in my webserver logs:

michael tsao death

Curious about what the world had to say about such an idea, I typed the same search term into Google and was saddened to see that indeed, Michael Tsao had died.

Long ago, back in the days when you could email people you found on the web and they’d actually reply, I wrote to the president of Kahiki Foods. I proudly announced that I, too, was a Michael Tsao, and told him a bit about myself. He promptly wrote back, saying that his son was also in the tech industry, and that he wished me well.

That was the extent of my relationship with this Michael Tsao. But even from my brief contact with him, I know he was a decent guy, and I’m sorry that he’s gone.
