A suicide letter posted to Github

Very sad:

There is a lot here to talk about, but I will start with something trivial: that he made two commits to the repo.

In the second commit, he adds a photo:


I feel like some day sociologists and historians will write of this era, and I hope details like this are remembered. It says something about how fully we live technological lives now, that a person might make multiple commits to a suicide note.

In fact, he might have made many commits and then used “rebase” to erase them.

Also, someone responded by opening an issue:


It’s a trivial detail, but it says a lot about our era.

I hope things turn out well for him.
