We have sad news to share. Susi, legendary Eyewirer and keystone in the community, has passed away. She spent 8 years playing and over this time became a friend and mentor to so many. She built deep friendships and was always willing to help fellow Eyewirers while welcoming new players to the community. Her generous multi-year sponsorship of swag supported special events and allowed many people around the world to sport Eyewire gear. Her collages to congratulate fellow players will forever have a spot in our hearts. She even generously hosted a homecooked Eyewire EU meetup at her house in Switzerland, where she demonstrated that she is as kind and caring in real life as she is online. Susi was a wonderful, warm part of the community and will be dearly missed.
To honor her, please share Susi stories. Share anecdotes and general sentiments. Share collages she made for you. Share kind words. We at HQ will compile these into a printed form to send en memorial to her husband as a way to forever remember the impact she had on the community behind the citizen science.
As suggested by annkri, we will likely launch a Susi’s Memorial neuron in the near future.
