This blog post is devoted to James Robertson - I was deeply saddened by the news of his passing last week.
My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
We both shared a common interest in spreading technical news on Smalltalk, dynamic languages and OOP technologies as we both devoted our
technology blogs to it - often pointing to each others news items.
We first met personally in March 2000 in San Diego - as part of a group of crazy people coming together for hacking on various stuff to unify and harmonize the ST industry
world with the first CampSmalltalk.
Following his example I started blogging in 2004 and over the years we exchanged a bunch
of emails, comments and posts on technical topics.
I enjoyed reading his blog, was listening to every single episode of his "Industry Misinterpretations" podcast series, used
his BottomFeeder aggregator, enjoyed his videos from conferences that I missed and I appreciated his short
videos on how to use various technologies. James - thanks for all of that!
The amount of work and time you devoted to moving us all forward is just amazing. You will be missed!
