I just found out that Dietmar passed away and I’m feeling incredibly sad. For those who were lucky enough to meet Dietmar you know he was one of the most kind and generous people in the world. Dietmar was a leader in the European domain industry and the pioneer of what became NamesCon Europe.
I had the chance to spend time with Dietmar in Portugal last year, and while we had chatted online for years it was my first time meeting him in-person. Dietmar was always smiling, always excited, and always proud of our industry and the people in it.
I’m going to spend some time learning more about Dietmar’s life because I really want to know more about this incredible man, and I’ll put together a more detailed post to truly honor his journey in life once I do. Right now honestly I just feel so sad that while I want to write more, I can’t, but I felt like I wanted to say something today to honor Dietmar.
Sending my love to Dietmar’s wife and family, I can tell you he made an impact in so many lives, today the world lost one of the best 😢
