A great friend of mine and MindTouch left us today. Marc Orchant passed away earlier today. I’m deeply saddened. Marc Orchant is one of the most wonderful people I’ve met professionally. I spoke briefly of Marc at my personal blog after hearing the initial terrible news of Marc’s critical condition. Oliver Starr has been providing updates about Marc’s condition and has provided a final update as well as setup means of donating to Marc’s family.
Robert Hunter, whom Oliver quotes, says it best:
Thank you for sharing your wisdom and for the friendship Marc. Mine and MindTouch’s thoughts are with Marc’s family.
