I was devastated to hear of Nick’s untimely passing, and wanted to reach out to his family and friends with my condolences. Nothing will provid consolation but maybe some memories will help. I knew Nick from the days of CTICM (1992-99). Nick and our team collaborated on many projects in the area of eLearning and open educational resources from 2000. He was a generous collaborator who instantly said yes to many hare-brained schemes, and was wiley in the ways of HE politics. Nick once stole an unsuccessful funding proposal that I wrote, and successfully submitted it to another funder! Didn’t even put us down as partners. 🙁 He secured my beloved Mac SE/30 together with a video disc player and disc of a virtual rat dissection for the RVC museum (it should still work guys, let me know if it needs any maintenance and I will fly over). I’ll miss knowing that he is out there plotting some new mischief. With all my love to those closest to him.
