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
