IT Lost an Advocate

I've been meaning to write about this for a while, but kept putting it off. It's not easy or fun to write about a loss. An old boss of mine passed away.

You may ask what that means to you. Well, that boss was Ed Foster, creator of InfoWorld's Gripe Line, a column that took vendors to task for rampant rip-offs, poor products and shoddy support.

Foster wrote this column for years, crafting countless words and putting vendors on notice. Ed left us late last month.

Were you a Foster fan? Is there anyone else that is filling this large void? Thoughts welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
