Darren Kroupa was a NIN fan who passed away on April 1, 2007. You can see his obituary [http://www.thnt.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/B3/20070403/OBITUARIES/704030364/1069/OBITS here].
Darren became well known
about NIN fans on two ocasions. First, he appeared on a [http://www.nin.com/current/photos/1_26_07.jpg photo] on the NIN current page. At the time, nothing was known about him.
Then his name showed up as part of the story on one of the Year Zero ARG websites, [[Secure Broadcast Informatics]], where he was a dissident who organized underground concerts and engaged in other "illegal" activities.
