I must have known Scott D. Crain (strictly by his Internet moniker cortana) for close to 15 years. Although I never met the man personally nor even spoke with him privately, his death comes far too suddenly and much too soon. I only knew Scott as cortana and he only knew me as Evirus, partly due to my now anachronistic insistance at divorcing my Internet persona from the rest of my life, and partly due to my paranoid suspicion that the Internet harbors mostly miscreants and misanthropes. cortana was neither of these. He was, without a doubt, one of the genuinely good people who brought decency and civility to our anti-social fringe of the dark web's acretion disc. (Including the IRC channel directly responsible for spawning 4chan, for crying out loud.) I can't do justice to the loss his passing brings, but I hope this small memorial will at least help someone who stumbles across it years from now (perhaps searching for c0rtana or cortana from #raspberryheaven and #marimite) appreciate that the myriad people who Scott knew globally from all walks of life uniformly thought fondly of him and valued his friendship. Scott, you will be missed.
