    Rest in peace Russell Shaw; We’ll miss you

    Advertisement



    This was a real shocker. Considering I just sent him a message on Friday. This is a great loss to the BlackBerry community. We first got to know Russell from his BlackBerry blog BBhub.com, then he moved on to Blog about BlackBerry on ZDnet.

    Russell Shaw was an enterprise computing journalist, analyst and author based in Portland, Oregon. A specialist in open source architectures and strategies, Microsoft applications, wireless networking, and multimedia content creation, Russell covered these fields regularly for several IT, business and consumer publications, including Investor's Business Daily and the syndicated IT news site NewsFactor.com.

    An author of six books, Russell's latest volume Wireless Networking Made Easy, written for the American Management Association's book division. He also wrote industry studies for Reed Elsevier's In-Stat/MDR unit, and for The Edison Group, a New York-based consultancy with a client base that includes many of the very top names in IT software, networking, and other enterprise computing applications.

    We would like to offer our sympathy to his family and friends.

    This is one source for information about RIM and Blackberry devices that could always be relied on. Blackberry Beat and Russell will be sorely missed.

    Please, All stackers, in your own fashion, honor the memory of Russell Shaw.
