Dr Russell Smith - Humanware

Open Letter To Editors

Christchurch, 9 August 2005

Dr Russell Smith - Humanware

We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Dr Russell Smith and his wife Marian D'Eve this weekend. Dr Smith’s contributions to New Zealand business were no better represented than at the MORGO 2005 Conference he was attending in Taupo where he spoke honestly and with passion to a new generation of New Zealand entrepreneurs. We will remember him for the wealth of experiences and knowledge he gave so generously over the years to all those around him. He was a champion for New Zealand’s high-tech sector and a role model for all those that will follow in his path. We will miss him.
