Dave spent much of his time running the PCI Knowledge Base, which he launched after a distinguished career as a Gartner analyst. I personally had the pleasure of working with Dave on many projects, panels and podcasts and found his keen observations and sense of humor to be most rare. He called his shots honestly but went out of his way to be kind. Dave's column was an instant hit with subscribers, as it gave him a forum for his observations and for his wry take on life. We'll miss him without limit and the industry has lost one of its brightest voices.
We're heartbroken to have to report to our readers that our esteemed PCI Columnist, David Taylor, passed away on Tuesday from a sudden heart attack. A private memorial service is being held in New York and Dave's family is asking for donations to the American Heart Association.
