Johan Ismail

I have just received a telephone call from a friend of mine telling me that Johan Ismail, author of has just passed away last night of a heart attack. Jeff Ooi has a posting on his website about this.

I first got to know Johan when I was with the MDC working on the Smart School and the Cross-Flagship Integration projects. He had been doing a lot of work on Learning Management Systems (culminating in !nk) and I had spent time discussing with him on how something like that would be implemented.

The one thing I remember about him was how dedicated he would be to what he believed in. I had intended to meet up with him again soon after he pointed me to his website. As his website is currently "off-air" I will temporarily disable the link to it in the left-hand column until it gets back up again.
