Really sad news, may his soul rest in eternal peace.

I have known Mark Bennett for many years, since those days in Malawi of Fidonet,
HealthNet over non-geo satellite, Acacia and such like network initiatives, well before
the Internet came to our region in Southern Africa ... and thereafter.

He indeed was a remarkable education entrepreneur. I did meet him in Zambia two years
ago during the first AIS, enthusiastic as ever. We will miss him.
