This morning I woke to horrible news as I just learned Russell Shaw has passed away. Apparently he died in his hotel room on a business trip. I cannot be sadder. Russell was a fantastic guy… And he seemed to enjoy his work more than just about anyone I know. And he produced lots of it. He had a regulation blog on TMCnet and on ZDnet he had a VoIP and Blackberry blog.
Russell was not content to just write about subjects he loved, he also spoke at shows. He was a great moderator and also met with countless vendors at events he participated at.
Russell also seemed to perform his tasks with an absence of ego. Although he had a great following, he didn’t ever let it go to his head. The TMCnet team will certainly miss Russell and his fantastic contributions.
Unfortunately about a month ago, we also lost a member of our accounting team. Frank Macari worked for TMC for about 18 years and he was the ultimate gentleman, respectful and proper and an all around fantastic person.
I would like to take this opportunity to say TMC and the world will miss both Russell and Frank… You were both great people to work with and our lives were better for having known you.
Rest in peace Russell Shaw; We’ll miss you
We’ll miss Russell Shaw
Thanks for all the good times Russell, we’ll miss you
Russell Shaw RIP
