One of the first developers who continued the work of Justin Frankel after he released the original Gnutella, Gene Kan became one of those few pretty well-known names in P2P world. According to News.com article, he died and was cremated last week, at the age of 25.
He launched his P2P career as one of the best-known Gnutella developers and was one of the guys to launch the "original" Gnutella site (gnutella.wego.com). Later on he took part of developing a P2P -based search engine dubbed as Infrasearch which was later acquired by Sun.
