It’s impossible for me to believe that Mark just suddenly died of a brain aneurism. Mark headed Immedient’s Business Intelligence practice in Denver and, frankly, he was my friend.
I have never had someone on my Instant Messenger list die – and I am not sure if I can bring myself to delete his profile. Then again I don’t know if I can leave it either.
Mark knew this stuff as well as anyone; we sat next to each other in Seattle at the Business Scorecard air lift; I spoke for him once at Analytics Avenue about Reporting Services. And now he’s dead.
Uhg. My stomach hurts.
