<nettime> Armin Medosch (1962-2017)

Armin was one of those people you meet in one place and then you realize
he was everywhere. Like for most, we crossed paths in fleeting circuit
of the early 90s - in one city after another (we met in Munich), in one
debate after another, in one publication, in one café after another ...
a kind of jumpy continuity that so meaningfully characterizes a
community like this. Nomadic and relentless, I remember Armin with great
admiration for his sense of serious humor and his diligent politics. 

In his posting about the death of Robert Adrian (in 2015), he wrote that
"... it then went more quickly than those close to him had anticipated." 
It always does. 

To a real part of the media sphere we all inhabit, I salute you, the
work you contributed, and the obvious group of colleagues who mourn your
loss for us all.
