KBK update for Sunday, 24th July
I just learned late last night of the unfortunate and untimely death of Michael Schmid, Cherry’s head of MX marketing. According to the article, Michael died in May; I only found by chance. I copied Michael in on an e-mail to Cherry on Thursday and immediately received a bounce for his address. LinkedIn showed that he still worked for Cherry, as did Cherry’s own website, but something seemed amiss, so after not hearing back from anyone at Cherry on Friday, I had a look last night to see if there was any other clue as to Michael’s whereabouts, and found that he had died.
I have Michael to thank for some of the Cherry source material on this site, including an old MX datasheet, and the M8 part number schema. Michael seemed passionate about Cherry; it’s tragic that he was taken from the world too soon.
