    RIP Paul Allen

    He died at age 65 from non Hodgkins lymphoma. No word on what this means for the sports teams he owns like the Seahawks and the Trailblazers

    Re: RIP Paul Allen

    Just reading yesterday how one of his products is helping catch elephant poachers before they get to the elephant using trackers and sensors in the field and on the elephants with it all being transmitted to a central spot. The number of charitable and philanthropic ventures he had his hand in are countless.

    A lot of good will stop.

    Watching how his will unfolds will be interesting. He had great attorneys, so his trusts will be well protected, but someone else will still have to run them.

    Ken Behring, the man who sold the Seahawks to Paul Allen, has passed away. He also developed Blackhawk, Ca. Been there many times.
