    So sad. Steve was a great inspiration to me in the early days of BMUG and later at MacWEEK magazine and the Apple spinoff User Group Connection, through his Apple Library User Group work and the community-organizing work he did. Always friendly, helpful, calm, interested. Ahead of his time in pre-internet visions of a connective, collaborative, community-driven world.

    On my way over to the memorial blog to meet mutual friends and perhaps find ways to make sure the spirit of his great work continues…

    I found a great video interview with Steve from the Incommunicado conference in 2005 and posted it here.

    Awww. Truly sad news. I remember Steve from the early days of The Well and his work at CPSR. Such a warm, sweet guy, always ready to help, to teach. A true pioneer of virtual community and networking, and of course, digital library science.
