When I created this blog I decided to make it entirely technical. No personal comments about what I was doing, etc.
I've decided to make an exception.
Last year I created a small software product, and as a result I was briefly in contact with Doug. He asked me a series of questions and the resulting interview was published on-line. He seemed like a nice chap, but I thought no more of it.
Next time I heard of him was in an excellent piece he wrote about how to deal with customers/clients/employers when you have cancer. Solid, sound, practical advice.
He died yesterday. I for one want to mark his passing. The world is poorer for his absence.
