We learned today that one of our directors, Mike Pfaiffer, has passed away. Michael was a programmer, editor of Call-A.P.P.L.E. and The Digital Civilization, as well as A.P.P.L.E. President. He passed away at his home in Manitoba Canada. Mike was a driving force behind the rejuvenation of A.P.P.L.E. in the early 2000’s and will be sorely missed by all of us.
