+ - Rusty Foster creator of Kuro5hin and Scoop is dead-> 4

Submitted by Arno Stark
Arno Stark (2789795) writes "Rusty Foster went on a trip to Mexico recently. He got sick and went to a hospital for treatment and then died. His Facebook page was frozen in memorial mode and his Twitter account was frozen as well. He forked Slashdot into a Perl based software called Scoop and started Kuro5hin and then helped The Daily Kos with their software for their web site."
