Russell Shaw Passed Away

Russell ShawWas flipping through Jaiku and saw a note from Darla Mack saying that Russell Shaw has passed away on Friday. I found one lone article confirming this, but it looks like Andy Abramson got an account of this by talking to Russell’s girlfriend.

Russell Shaw blogged about a great number of things for ZDNet, TMCNet, and The Huffington Post, not to mention a number of books. And I thought I wrote a lot. ;)

I never did get to meet Russell Shaw, in real life or on the Internet. I do know, however, he was well-respected and I enjoyed reading his work. He will be missed by the Internet community, judging by what I’ve seen in my RSS reader so far from the likes of Dan York, Ken Camp, and others.
