HQ Trivia co-founder Colin Kroll dead at 35

Very sad news today out of New York. BBC News:

The CEO, who also co-founded the video platform Vine, was found by police after his girlfriend reportedly asked them to check on him.

The death is being investigated as a suspected drugs overdose, police say.

HQ Trivia, a live trivia game on mobiles, became hugely popular, but its appeal waned this year.

HQ Trivia’s statement:

Kroll’s co-founder Rus Yusupov:

Other than a brief email exchange when HQ was getting off the ground, I never came into contact with Kroll. But, judging by the tweets put out there today, he will be sorely missed.
