Wednesday – Wiki Life … not this time.


Today we received some sad news.

Allow me to quote a tweet of Yuri Diogenes as that same tweet refers to an interview I had with Kurt Hudson:

A great friend and writer left us last 4th July.
RIP Kurt

my last memory from TechEd

[edit]
Kurt died on July 4th in a cycling accident while on a trip with his family. We all feel lucky to have worked with him. It’s a great loss to everyone who knew him and to the PKI community for the tremendous positive, friendly approach and let’s do it attitude he brought with him (that’s the core definition of a Wiki Ninja, right?)…he will be missed.

Kurt has done an amazing job as Wiki Ninja.

Don’t know how it would relate to the Wiki Ninja Belt Rankings, but Kurt definitely has earned his place in the Wiki Ninja hall of fame.

    Really sad news. I agree, he was a pillar on the whole community.

    A simple example was all the migration he done from documentation on msdn to the wiki for better collaboration, forum participation, etc…

    He will be missed, I send my deepest condolences to his family

  2. Kurt has been an author on this blog, an incredibly kind friend, super giving, an important Wiki Ninja, a key team member in getting TechNet Wiki rolling, and a valuable contributor to Microsoft technology and to our community. We will miss you!

  3. The Directory Services MVP's have often worked with Kurt. I remember meeting him at Summits. Yes, he will be missed.

  4. Ace Fekay, MVP-DS, MCT says:

    I have never had the chance to personally meet Kurt, but after numerous emails between us in the DS-MVP DL, we eventually become FB friends a short while ago. I must say, for the short time I got to know Kurt, Kurt had a fabulous sense of humor! I enjoyed our conversations; funny to say the least!.

    I just can't believe this happened to him. I will deeply miss Kurt.

  5. I have never had the chance to personally meet Kurt, but after numerous emails back and forth in the DS-MVP DL, and making light of some of the tech topics, we eventually become FB friends a short while ago. I must say, Kurt had a fabulous sense of humor! I enjoyed our conversations.

    I just can't believe this happened to him. I will deeply miss Kurt.

    (Sorry for the double post)

    I just was exchanging emails with him last week.  Kurt went out of his way to be helpful and kind, what a great human being.  Sorry to lose such a great guy.  

    My condolences to his family and friends.

    A nice tribute for a very sad loss.

    Kurt certainly made a mark in many people's lives, and his memory through his contributions will live on and help countless others.

  8. Very sad. His great contribution to TechNet Wiki will never be lost and never be forgotten, never.

    I'll miss him.

    Mr, Peter, I want to thank you for this post. This is my Uncle Kurt.

    Thank you to all those wishing us well. He was an AMAZING person and is missed immensely. To many of us, he was our idol and friend, as well as family. It will never be the same…
