Jay Cross

Nov 09, 2015

Jay Cross passed away on Friday. Since then tributes have been pouring in from around the world. He was doing his own Internet Time newsletter when I started emailing OLDaily in 2001, and was active and well-known in the field when I met him for the first time in 2002 (pictured). I saw him many times after that, and his ubiquitous camera is part of what prompted me to make sure I always had a camera with me when I traveled. Jay identified many key trends in the field long before anyone else and would always enthusiastically share whatever he knew. He was a good man, a kind man and a giving man, and we will all miss him. Tributes: Jane Hart, Clark Quinn, Harold Jarche, Curt Bonk, Alan Levine, Inge de Waard, Ravi Singh,, Gina Minks, Will Richardson, Twitter tributes.
