Chris "Oggie" Lightfoot 1978-2007: tributes and responses

The announcement of Oggie's death on his weblog is here. There is also an announcment from MySociety, the charity for which he worked, and one from the campaign group No2ID, with which he was deeply involved.

An announcement was printed in the Register section of the Times of Saturday 3 March; you can find it on the Times' website for 28 days from the date of publication using this search form, or see a copy of it.

A Times obituary was published on Friday 16 March.

Other responses are linked below. Google Blog Search and Technorati's search may find things that I have missed, or have been slow to find. My apologies for any such omissions; do email me if you notice any.

The list is intended to be comprehensive; some of the responses linked are long pieces, others simply a brief comment or a link.
