David Foster Wallace, RIP

September 15, 2008

I just read that David Foster Wallace committed suicide last Friday.1,2 The world is a less interesting place without him.


1 I am ashamed to say I have never read Infinite Jest, despite having borrowed a copy from someone at least once.

2 Wallace wrote the single best magazine article I have ever read.3

3 Interestingly, the multiply nested footnotes work better in print than they do as hypertext links.
