Ton Roosendaal on sick leave

Let’s hope Ton gets well soon. It’s a real pity he can’t experience the first LA Blender Conference. :slightly_frowning_face:

If you’re immunocompromised, the safest thing is to keep away from large crowds, especially at the moment!

Indeed.
I’m at ground zero (Seattle), and the county is recommending meetings >60 people be cancelled.

Nice to hear Ton is recovering well, but he will need to be very cautious about his environment when considering his immune system weakness combined with his age.

At least we also know that he has a plan to keep the BF going, we can wish for Ton to have many more years ahead of him, but he won’t live forever. Hopefully the community won’t have to deal with that for a couple more decades.

Even when Ton will leave us one day in the far, far future, he will live on in every line of Blender code.
