Earthlink's visionary CEO Gary Betty has died. He was only 49.

While I did not know Gary, I knew much of the fruits of his labors.

I've always admired Atlanta-based Earthlink as a resourceful, honest and successful company who managed to battle the cable and telco Internet Service Provider giants deftfully but never without forgetting the consumer.

How so?

Excellent Internet access services. Innovative third-party alliances. Stable and dependable Web hosting.  A small fleet of appropriate web services tools. And as far as I know, no manic marketing with excessive pop-ups and spam.

Earthlink is a good company, that has been run by a competitive, but a grounded and good man.

The telecommunications and Internet industries need more like him.
