I know not many people that would be reading this follow tech much but I wanted to put the Kim family in my thoughts and prayers here anyway. James Kim was the editor in chief at CNet, a company responsible for a lot of the podcasts I listen to as well as the operator of many popular websites.

James Kim and his family were traveling when they became stranded. James built a fire for his family and then set off for help. Earlier this week the family was found and the search continued for James. On Wednesday, James' body was found just miles from shelter.

"In my eyes, as a father, and in the eyes of his family, he is a true hero. He took the difficult but at the same time easy decision to risk his life to save the lives of those he loved the most...Rest in peace, brave man."
