Btw, the roof Dean is standing on in that picture by Mullenweg is at 71 East Pender Street. Maybe one of Mullenweg’s many apartments from WP riches?

Now that i look at that picture again it makes sense that the angle is from above and next door to the building with the sign. There are some nice condos in that building, so perhaps one of Dean’s friends lives there. Or Matt may have a condo there.

Re: Toast to Dean

It’s a shitty trophy that no one would want to win, but I guess this now makes me the longest standing txp user here.

Although my blog now runs on Perch, it only does so because of Dean showing me that something as ambitious as creating an entire CMS to fit your own vision was even possible.

He always had a user account on my site to be able to log in and see problems in those early days. I’ve migrated content over the years, and eventually moved away from txp. 15 (?) years later, Dean’s account still remains. And how could I ever delete it now.

I keep trying to pen something in remembrance, but I can’t help but imagine Dean’s critical eye on the writing so I never get anywhere. I’ll keep trying.

Re: Toast to Dean

RIP Dean, you helped me, many others and clearly you were a beautiful human being.

:’(


At LAST I’ve cheerfully donated to the core devs at #TXP. I only wish I were able to give more. Thanks to the devs and ALL fellow TXPers. -A
