Sadness comes again

I found out yesterday that Dr. Russell Smith, the head of Humanware, died in a plane crash. There are simply no words.
I met him once, maybe more. I remember once at convention, I was introduced to him. I was exhausted, you know how those conventions are. So I didn't exactly connect who I was talking to. Later, I wanted to smack myself in the head. You think I could've thanked him for what he did.
For those not up on blindness technology, Humanware is the company that invented, makes and sells the BrailleNote. Very very lovely piece of technology!
