Safe Journey Home, Larry Prusak

I learned this morning that Larry Prusak had passed away over the weekend. I never had the good fortune to work closely with him, but considered him a friend, and my sense of loss is not just for myself but for the whole community of knowledge management practitioners that he inspired. He embodied in his work, his friendships, and his influence the generosity, the open-handedness and the honesty that I think characterises the best of our discipline. Dave Snowden has written a moving tribute, Nancy Dixon wrote a profile of him when he retired from teaching at Columbia, and Stan Garfield has a profile page worth visiting. My best memory of him is the conversation I had with Dave Snowden and Larry in Kuala Lumpur in 2008, on the topic “Is Knowledge Management Dead?”. Slán abhaile, Larry.
