Kham S. Ung 1972-2011

The Skeptics’ Guide to Government lost one of its members today. Kham Ung died at the University of Nebraska hospital in Omaha on October 20, 2011. I had only known him for a few months, but I can tell you he was very good natured with a wonderful, snarky sense of humor.

From his bio written for the sggov website:

Kham S. Ung is the Writer, Director, Producer and Co-founder of
Shuriken Productions; an independent film production company that produces movies, short-film, and documentaries. But before all of that, Kham S. Ung is a first-generation immigrant from Laos that grew up in small town rural Iowa and attended Iowa State University and is currently enrolled in the MBA program at Upper Iowa University, and has worked as an engineer for 15 years for many Fortune 500 companies as an independent consultant.

Kham is a rock-star in his own mind and envisions a world in which money, women, and power are lavishly thrown at his feet.

He is sorely missed, both as a collaborator and as a friend.
