No more Emru

Emru Townsend, the guy whose search for a bone marrow donor became an Internet campaign to get people to register, and who found a match but kept the campaign going, died Tuesday night after it became clear the cancer was too much for the transplant.

The hope now is that others won’t have to face the same fate.

UPDATE: PC World, which he contributed to, has an obit (via mtlweblog) with links to some of his articles, including the 10 worst (console) games of all time.

The Gazette also has a longer obit posted, at least part of which was compiled before his death when it was clear he wouldn’t make it.
