Rest In Peace, Marc Orchant
It was with great shock and sadness this evening that I read of Marc Orchant’s death. I didn’t know Marc well, or even that he was being hospitalized because of a heart attack. I first met him at the “MSN Search Champs V2” event back in 2005. Over those few days he made a great and lasting impression. I fondly remember geeking out with him at one of Scoble’s “geek dinner” events at the Crossroads Mall in Bellevue, talking about nifty uses for Tablet PCs. I looked forward to the next time our paths would cross, and am deeply saddened that they never will again.
Even though I only met Marc a few times, I didn’t need more than that to know he was a good man. My deepest condolences to Marc’s family. He will be missed.
