Wow-- Joseph Steinberg, a.k.a. the Infidel, a.k.a. Hume's Bastard and various other IDs, is dead.

I knew Steinberg primarily from his comments, and from the fact that he connected with me on Google Plus and possibly LinkedIn; can't say that I ever reciprocated. We were never friends, exactly, but we had a cordial relationship. Joseph used to be quite active as a commenter on many sites; he also started and stopped his own blogs and feeds on numerous occasions. He was, in fact, such a pervasive online presence that the news of his death, which I saw on Twitter, came as a true shock.

RIP, Joseph.
