As many of you will know, blogger Marc Orchant died today from a cardiac infraction he suffered while working in his home office last week. Marc was one of the earliest hosts on TPN and a very early guest on G’Day World back in Feb 2005. A few weeks after that I got to hang out with him and his lovely wife Sue for a little bit at DEMO in Scottsdale Arizona. Marc and I also sat on a panel together for a video podcast wrap-up of the each day’s sessions which is the photo below. I haven’t spoken much to Marc over the last couple of years but I’ve always thought of him as a genuine gentleman and blogging pioneer. You’ll be missed mate.
