I just heard the sad news about Warren DeLano, one of the giants of open source scientific software (and the author of PyMOL). Warren passed away suddenly a few days ago. Like everyone else, I’m stunned and saddened by this news. For those of you who don’t know, PyMOL is a fantastic piece of software that has produced some of the highest quality journal covers in the past decade. I met Warren only a few times. But over the years, we’ve had a few fantastic conversations about Jmol, PyMol, and how to make open source sustainable in the scientific world. I’ll miss his voice and his contributions to the community.
Warren’s family has created a “In Memorium” page and blog. Please share your memories there !
