I am posting here two of Frank Paynter‘s comments on MandarinDesign blog, announcing a memorial service for Michelle Goodrich aka Mandarin Meg, who left us on June 26th.
I am so sorry that I won’t be able to attend.
Frank has posted instructions here
At 4pm Pacific time (GMT minus eight hours)on Friday July 28 there will be a Freenode IRC chat and a face-to-face gathering in San Jose memorializing meg. This will be a non-sectarian memorial and all are welcome. We will gather in the manner of Friends… sitting in silence and sharing through voice and keyboard, our memories of Meg. email me for more information and I will continue to update these comments as the day approaches.

The memorial for Meg will be at BlogHer on July 28, from 3:45 to 4:45 in suite 8111 at the Hyatt. A Freenode IRC chat space will be set-up for remote participants. We are also looking at the possibility of audio streaming so remote friends of Meg can hear what people are sharing in her memory. (See the Day One Conference schdule here
