I first met Alan in the early days of W3C.  He and I spent many hours 
figuring out how to make the impenetrable bureaucracies of IBM and MIT 
cooperate, and he always managed to make the task pleasant.

I'd often bump in to Alan en route to W3C activities in Asia, and those 
airport meetings were always a special pleasure, because then we could 
just talk without an agenda to deal with. 

Every time I talked with Alan, I came away from the encounter a better 
person. 

I'll miss you, Alan.  May your memory be a blessing.
