Robert H. Stambaugh died

John Macy just emailed me to let me know that last week Robert (Bob) H. Stambaugh died last week aged 59. For those who did not know Bob he was a major influencing factor in HRIS thought leadership over the last 30 years writing many articles and presenting at dozens of conference. I had the pleasure of attending several of his talks and we were luck enough to have him speak at an HRIS SIG event a couple of years ago. Bob was editor of the IHRIM book 21 Tomorrows (a fantastic collection of article on the future of HRIS. He was the co-founder of the IHRIM Journal and member of the board for several years.

There are several notes floating around and a Wikipedia article has been started by Karen Beaman. If you knew or worked with Bob have a look at adding some content to the article.
