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.
