A good man gone — Marc Orchant 1957-2007

Marc Orchant passed away last week following a heart attack. He was 50.

We collaborated on Foldera in 2006 and have been swapping mails ever since. I never met him in person, but found his thinking and his writing to be superb. He was great at ZDNET, and most recently at Blognation. I’ll miss him and wish his wife and children the best during this difficult time.
