Mark Hoekstra, Dutch blogger and hacker, has passed away at the age of 34 after suffering a heart attack last Wednesday. We at 24oranges found out on Twitter this morning. We mentioned him once last year because he did really cool stuff: Illegal but fun broadband access.

Quoting TUAW: “Many of Mark’s hacks and adventures are thoroughly documented on his blog, geek technique, evidence of Mark’s creative drive and problem-solving ability. He was a geek’s geek in the proudest sense of the word.”
