It was with sadness on Thursday 7th that I heard of the loss of a fellow geek and Hackday attendee Julien Fourgeaud following a Base Jumping accident in Magland, France on Wednesday 6th.

I only met Julien a few times, but he was always great company to be around, especially the week Geeks of London held a trip over to Delft in the Netherlands, along with Paypal’s Charity Hack and LinkedGov UK Hackday held at LBI London.

The world over has lost an all round good guy who was always prepared to help and inspire where he could.

34 years is far too young for anyone to go, and there is no doubt that he will be missed in the geek community and all others he was involved in.

A memorial to Julien can be found over on this Facebook Page.
