Dear friends,

You may already have heard about the devastating loss of the world's 
premier Data Diva, Michael Bauer, who worked at School of Data right 
from the beginning of the project until last year.

Michael travelled and met and helped more people than any one person 
could ever hope to keep track of. (Man, I was his manager for two years 
and I hardly knew where he was…) It would be amazing to hear stories 
from around the world of the amazing things he did.

The Internet is a fragmented place and we would love to capture and 
consolidate memories from that journey to share and preserve offline and 
online in one place for friends and family alike.

As a result, I would like you to invite to send memories of Michael to a 
team of curators who will consolidate them and make them available to 
everyone who is interested. Ideally, they should include:

* a geographic location (yes, the Internet counts)
* an image [if you have one]
* a message, handwritten or typed

Based off what people submit, we will then curate these and work out the 
most appropriate mechanism to present them. There will definitely be an 
offline version for his loved ones, recommendations also welcomed for 
online spaces.

Please email me directly on Lucy [at] fedia . net - or tweet them to me 
at @lucyfedia. For any particularly large files - please contact me as 
above and we will establish a solution.

I will ensure to share on this mailing list when the collection is 
finished. Thank you for helping us celebrate a wonderful - and truly 
idiosyncratic human being,

Lucy and friends
