I noticed a comment this morning on a photo I took at Podcast Academy (at the Portlable Media Expo) last year. The photo was of DigitalBill, from the Wizards of Technology podcast. The comment:
Rest in Peace Bill. You were a Star.
That sounded serious. There wasn’t anything on the Wizards of Technology site, where Bill had posted as recently as a couple of weeks ago. A little bit of digging turned up this post at MacMerc, stating that Bill had passed away a couple of days ago, of apparently natural causes.
I didn’t know Bill very well, but I’m very sorry to hear of his passing. He was a smart, funny (walked around PME in a kilt, to make a point about getting people’s attention) guy. My condolences to his family and friends…
Update: Here’s one of the (blurry) photos I have of Bill in his utili-kilt:
