[bksvol-discuss] Re: Extremely sad news to the Bookshare.org community

I am so sorry to hear Gustavo died. The last time I spoke with him he sounded about as stressed as anyone I have ever spoken to while at work. He contributed monumentally to bookshare in so many ways. So sorry to hear he is no longer with us.

It is with great regret and sorrow that I inform you that Gustavo Galindo passed away suddenly yesterday. Gustavo was the Site Manager for Bookshare.org, and was the foundation of our Bookshare.org team. He was involved in the rapid growth of our collection over the last four years through personally approving each book being added. Gustavo was fierce in his dedication to serving people with print impairments while getting it right, by taking our commitments to publishers and authors seriously. He had a formidable intellect, and his insights, understanding and sense of humor will be sorely missed by our team.

We can honor Gustavo's commitment to access and books by doing our best to bring more books to more people with print disabilities around the world.
