    Surpurisingly this hasnt been posted, or at least I tried a search and didnt find anything. Anyway, James Kim, editor of CNET has been found dead. His family was stranded in Oregon and he went out for help. They found his family but did a 4 day search and finally found his body today.

    For those who don't know who he is, he used to be on techtv, when it was actually cool, and then became the editor of CNET.

    Anyway, this was a big hit to the computer world and best wishes to his family...

    Yeah, I just heard about that. I didn't realize he was a CNET editor. Apparently they got stuck in a storm and his wife and kids stayed behind while he went for help. The wife had to breast feed both of there kids for the duration of the time they where stranded.

    i heard about it on NPR but had no idea who it was

    i guess they missed their turn and decided to take an alternate route instead of turning around
