Friends of Craig Cline
In celebration and memory of the life of Craig Cline.
Gene Gable brought a CD of pictures from Seybold with him to the Craig Cline memorial.
Roger Black: "Craig was one of the few who could see the patterns forming in front of the train."
Dave Winer: "There are very few people who will stand with you when you know you're right. Everyone who knew Craig knew someone like that, and that made us special too."
Dale Dougherty: "Craig was big like a brown bear: slow and watchful, deliberate yet excitable."
From Gayle Cline: "Regards Craig's 'family' funeral, this Saturday -- we are creating a memorial garden spot on the ranch (his wish to be there with us), so if anyone wants to contribute potted plants, or memorabilia, they should have them sent here: 6100 Johntown Creek Rd, Garden Valley, CA 95633.
David Weinberger: "Craig was knowledgeable, helpful, honest and friendly."
Tim Bray: "I owe Craig a lot."
Joseph B. Solorio (via email): "Craig Cline was more of a father to me in my relatively short time knowing him than my own father ever cared to be. I had the honor of cooking for Craig on his last father's day before he passed, it was pretty hard seeing him in such a state, having remembered how vibrant an individual he had been, but I am really very glad that I was able to be there with him in some small way. He taught me alot, probably more than he even knew, about how one is supposed to care for their family, especially their children. He will be sorely missed."
Alexis Girard (via email): "Craig was one of the few people to whom you could apply today that phrase from more genteel times: A Gentleman and a Scholar. But he was more than that, he was also a powerful agent of change who impacted countless lives for the better through empowerment. His work on the Seybold conferences and publications puts him among the handful of people most responsible for enlightening people about the tremendous enablement that technology had laid at their door, in the form first of desktop publishing, then of web publishing. Thanks in great part to him personally, Seybold was for many years without a doubt the most important conference at the intersection of technology and culture, and he set the standard for how to do it right. Thanks Craig."

Craig died yesterday after a long illness. His wife Gayle and six children were at his bedside.
We've started this site to accumulate stories of Craig's life, to provide information about the memorial service, and a mailbox for people to send messages to the family.
Mike Zornek: "Craig was a great guy. I really enjoyed working for him."
If you want to send a message to the family, or if you've written a blog post and wish to have it linked into this page, please send an email to craigclinefriends at gmail dot com.
