Really saddened to hear this.

I've only recently started digging into his work and I can only imagine how it'll impact my worldview for years to come.

For those unfamiliar with his work, here are some essays I recommend as a start:

1. On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs: https://www.strike.coop/bullshit-jobs/

2. What's the Point If We Can't Have Fun? https://thebaffler.com/salvos/whats-the-point-if-we-cant-hav...

3. How to change the course of human history (at least, the part that’s already happened) https://www.eurozine.com/change-course-human-history/
