Recall I posted earlier about her book on Weblogs in libraries. I, too, hoped to meet her at upcoming conferences.
A Sad Day in the Info Science Community
My colleague and cohort chum Joyce Valenza sent me a message this morning:
Dr. Laurel Anne Clyde, a professor of Social Science at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, Iceland, suffered a fatal heart attack on Sunday, September 18, 2005. I have read many of Dr. Clyde's scholarly papers, presentations and articles on social software. She authored Weblogs & libraries last year, the first scholarly work on the topic!
I had hoped she and I would meet at some future info science conference because I she was certainly a source of inspiration for my research and writing.
Here is her page at the University of Iceland:
I'll link to an obituary as soon as I find one.
