RIP David Dreger

David Dreger (known by many as his Gamertag Knuckles Dawson) went missing last month. Tonight his family confirmed that his body has been found.

I first learned of David right after the Xbox 360 launch when he set his personal goal of getting an Xbox 360 achievement every single day. I was impressed with his passion and commitment and I had the pleasure of having him as a guest on my podcast when I met him at PAX in 2006 to discuss his daily quest. You can listen to the interview I did with him here. It begins approximately 59 minutes in.

David went on to write for  Xbox 360 Fanboy (which was a subset of Joystiq). He then went on to work with the great folks over at Achievement Hunter. I always enjoyed seeing David at industry events, and I along with my colleagues send thoughts and prayers to his family.
