I only just met John last month at the NJLA conference. He was exuberant, excited, and effusive about podcasting at the panel. He was so full of life. Because of this, even though I hardly knew him, I was shocked to hear that he passed away recently.
What a loss for the field. What a loss for his family. We need people with his devotion to their craft. I wish I had gotten to know him better.
