We are deeply saddened by the news that our member, colleague, and friend Ben bushing Byer passed away of natural causes on Monday, February 8th. Without him, we as a team would not exist. He was a mentor to many, and an inspiration to us all. Outspoken but never confrontational, he was proof that even in the competitive and oftentimes aggressive hacking scene, there is a place for both a sharp mind and a kind heart. He brought us together, as a group and in spirit. To us he was, of course, much more.
