UPDATE: The former @Zappos leader died earlier today “due to complications from injuries sustained in a house fire," a lawyer for Hsieh said. #RJnow #tonyhsieh
He was only 46. :(

I listened to a https://www.wsj.com/articles/tony-hsieh ... malertNEWS. It may behind a paywall. Not sure if clicking thru from https://www.techmeme.com/210327/p5#a210327p5 will help. Headline is below.

"Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh Bankrolled His Followers. In Return, They Enabled His Risky Lifestyle.
The group that surrounded the late Zappos boss helped sustain his drug habit, protected him from outsiders and lived off his largess"

Seems so sad that someone with so much potential (if the stories are true) went into a literal death spiral. :(
