Last week I was deeply saddened to learn of the tragic and slightly bewildering passing of Nigel McFarlane– a great friend and colleague of all of us at SitePoint.
Nigel was a widely-respected open-source expert, advocate and commentator, who worked very closely with the publishing team on our soon-to-be-released ‘Firefox Secrets’ book. His astonishing technical knowledge, concise but elegant turn of phrase and typically geeky sense of humour made him an instant hit in the SitePoint office.
We all regret both the future book projects and the future beers we’ll never get the opportunity to share with him.
A greatly missed friend.
