Kehoe, Brendan (1970 - 2011)
Brendan Patrick Kehoe was born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in China, ME. As a teen, he became interested in computers and programming and attended Widener University (PA) to study computers. While there, he wrote Zen and the Art of the Internet: A Beginner's Guide (1992) which was the first widely published guide to the Internet. A PC Magazine survey listed this book as one of the top tech books and, at Kehoe's insistence, it is freely available online.
He was a gifted programmer and worked during the 1990's in Silicon Valley.
He returned to Ireland later in his life and volunteered as IT support for the local school.
He died in Dublin in 2011 of leukemia.
