This is very sad news.

Itojun was patience with my modifications to OpenBSD's IPv6 code and my IPv6 parsing bugs in PF were very humbling; for Itojun it was never about being right, it was about doing the right thing. We've lost both an outstanding technical hacker and a passionate advocate for sanity in the standards process.

However, Itojun's passion was not limited to IPv6 - he often said that he was a geek about everything, and it's true: his interest in music, books, movies, food and culture was amazing (and well documented for the past 12 years on his blog). Tokyo, and the world, is a less interesting place without him.
