A week after suffering a massive heart attack Marc Orchant passed away today. Marc was part of our ZDNet blogger team for a few years and well known and respected in the tech blogger community. Marc's good friend Oliver Starr posted the sad news here. I've known Marc and his wife Sue since he started blogging for us, and always enjoyed my time with them, hanging out at conferences late at night, during the more relaxing moments. Our sympathy goes out to Sue and their children Rebecca and Jason and the rest of their family and close friends.
