: Sad News about Associate Editor Gary Marsden

We are deeply saddened to advise that Gary Marsden passed away Dec. 27, 2013 in Cape Town, likely due to heart failure. Gary devoted his professional life to the applications of ICT and human-computer interaction for development. He was a pillar of the African ICT4D community – he was one of the first ICT4D researchers to be based on the continent, and he mentored a large group of students, many of whom sought him out as an advisor. Gary served as an Associate Editor for ITID since 2010. We remember him as a jovial and nurturing friend and colleague. Our thoughts are with his family. We will truly miss him.

Tributes to Gary are being collected by his department at gaz_tribute@cs.uct.ac.za. And at ITID, we hope to publish a memorial issue in Gary’s honor in about a year’s time.
