I am very sorry to have to relay the news that Andy Purshottam passed away last week at his home in Kensington. I knew him mostly from the Kabuki-West dinners/parties/events, and I think a number of people on my friends list knew him from that, or from UC Berkeley or one of the companies he was associated with. According to the email forwarded last night, he had had a number of health problems recently, and died at his home sometime between Monday and Saturday of last week. I don't have any other details.
I'll remember Andy as a colorful, garrulous character with an opinion on everything, especially food, travel, politics, and technical topics. If I learn anything about memorial plans, etc., I'll post them here.
