A Sad Day in the Info Science Community

My colleague and cohort chum Joyce Valenza sent me a message this morning:

Dr. Laurel Anne Clyde, a professor of Social Science at the University of Icelandin Reykjav?k, Iceland, suffered a fatal heart attack on Sunday, September 18, 2005. I have read many of Dr. Clyde’s scholarly papers, presentations and articles on social software. She authored Weblogs & libraries last year, the first scholarly work on the topic!

I had hoped she and I would meet at some future info science conference because I she was certainly a source of inspiration for my research and writing.

Here is her page at the University of Iceland:

I’ll link to an obituary as soon as I find one.
