He came into my life like a fever dream and helped build @moby_app. He was a founder again. Moby was his dream, his vision. Bob believed that we have a right to privacy in the 21st century. That belief is Moby. The thing is, Bob was so much more than a technologist. Bob was an artist. Everywhere he went Bob breathed love into this world. He had so much deep heartfelt love. Traveling with Bob was like seeing the world for the first time.”

He added: “Bob’s energy was infectious. He made friends everywhere he went. One of the things that made him truly special was his capacity to dream big and to summon those big crazy dreams into our world. Bob summoned the future into the present. Bob was brilliant. He mind was kaleidoscopic. Pick a topic and Bob would be right there with you telling you all of the ways he had thought about the idea already. It was a delight. His brain moved at an unbelievable velocity. I will never forget Bob. There will never be anyone quite like him. As a lifelong Bay Area resident I have more questions than answers tonight. I don’t know how to fix what’s wrong, but I know something isn’t working in our grey city. Bob left this world too soon.”
