First Meta CEO found dead in Singapore: Autumn Radtke, the 28-year-old CEO of an upstart bitcoin exchange, died last week under mysterious circumstances at her home in Singapore.
The U.S.-born head of First Meta was found dead by police on Feb. 28, with the cause of death yet to be determined. In a statement on its website, First Meta said the company "was shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of our friend and CEO Autumn Radtke."
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, the company's director and nonexecutive chairman, Douglas Abrams, said the exact cause of Radtke's death was "still under investigation."
"The most merciful thing in the world, I think,is the inability of the human mind to corrrelate all its contents.We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity and it was not meant that we should voyage far.The sciences,each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little.But someday the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality,and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age." ~ H.P.
