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, eLearning.nl, Gina Minks, Will Richardson, Twitter tributes.
