I've been a bit out of the loop on Next Island stuff. Just saw this post on facebook from May. ------------------------------------- Next Island May 16 at 1:33 PM · Greetings Entropians, It is with a heavy heart we regret to inform our community that David Post, the founder and visionary of Next Island, has passed away. As his friends and family celebrate his legacy, we hope all of those who have enjoyed participating in his vision being brought to life will do the same. David was a kind man, with a fun vision for Next Island and a playful sense of humor. The origins of Next Islands lore are rooted in a childhood dream of his that he always wanted to see come to life, and fortunately for everyone, his story has been immortalized on Next Island. One of David's commonly spoken fond memories was Coney Island amusement park near where he grew up. So in his honor, and with his family's blessing, Next Island will be developing an annual celebration with lighthearted games and activities. For now, please feel free to visit the statue of Vice Admiral Post at Paradise Landing on Next Island to pay your respects to the man who made this all possible, and whose legacy will continue to live on for many years to come.
