Regrettably, I was informed today that one of the crew, iBC contributor, distinguished gentleman of both PPT and 12631, passed away recently. His twitter handle was @dffapa– but his real name was Matt.
I don’t know how he died. All I know is that he was one of us, regular contributor to the stream of consciousness that is one of the most important and valued things in my life. His last comment to me was in early August, a sharp chastising for going long–deservedly so. Perhaps I should’ve listened to him. He was definitely a really sharp dude and good trader.
However, I will have you know that I did once have the honour and privilege of devouring his liver whole in a stock named FOSL. We had a brief competition inside of PPT with it, which carried over onto iBC. It was in good humour, unlike the catastrophe of my very own liver being eaten today in a ship stock named OSG.
At any rate, here is the full archive of Matt’s comments on my blog. Rest in peace, friend.
Heartfelt condolences go out to his friends and family.

Very nice Fly. Matt will be missed
This is very sad news. I always looked forward to his updates in my stream, on iBC, and once upon a time, in the PPT. It is a shame he died young. But, judging by his instagram lifestyle, he also lived a very full life during the time he was given. That is more than most can say. My condolences to his friends and family.
I looked through his pics too. He did like to enjoy himself.
Life is short. Enjoy it when you can.
I am sincerely sorry for your loss Fly.
I didn’t know him. He was part of the crew who regularly visited and contributed. I wanted to show some respect for his contributions.
Nice tribute Fly.. Warmest thoughts to his Family..
Sad to hear. You said nice things about him, Fly.
Life is the most precious thing.
Rest in peace Matt.
That sucks. Rip
Didn’t know you Matt, but RIP. Nothing worse than going while still in your prime.
R.I.P. Matt. Well done Fly, well done.
Prayers for his family, friends, and all who will miss him.
Weird. He looks a lot like my friend Matt who died in the Towers ten years back.
Fly, you say you didn’t “know him” but in a weird sort of early 21st century way you did.
Wow, terrible to go so young. RIP Matt.
May he rest RIP
Rest in peace Matt.
