    Supporters of increasing diversity in the technology industry are mourning the loss of a veteran entrepreneur at the forefront of the issue.

    Hank Williams,50, a resident of New York City, died Sunday at Newark (N.J.) Beth Israel Medical Center after a weeklong hospital stay. He was being treated for complications from pneumonia and myocarditis, which can be caused by a viral infection of the heart. He is survived by his wife and daughter.

    Williams founded Internet music company Clickradio in 1998 and cloud storage and data management platform Kloudco in 2008. In 2012, he founded Platform.org, a non-profit group aimed at increasing the interest and participation of blacks, Latinos and women in the tech industry. Platform's annual event, first held at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Mass., has been hosted by Morehouse College in Atlanta over the past two years.

    This is really saddening. He was only 50 years old, but I am glad he was able to accomplish his goals in life, and became very succesful. Gone too soon though. May he rest in peace now.
