Brian was my best friend at Stanford. I miss him sorely today, thirty years later.
I never realized, until after he was gone, that I had developed a habit where I would think up new ideas just to be able to tell him about them. Just being friends with Brian made me smarter. I've never found that free flowing intellectual companionship we shared since. His loss is incalculable.
