RE: [evonline2002_webheads] Re: Elder Bob
- Rita, all,
Not sure if I mentioned that Elder Bob was my Skype buddy when I was learning how to webcast (an ongoing process). He was always on line and willing to help when I gave him a quick ring. My enduring image of Elderbob is the man in chaps that's his Skype avatar: http://www.myspace.com/elderbob

And I will never forget Elderbob's Knowplace discussion forums, calling himself a "Podcast Nut" --always ready to share, help, contribute, give prompt advice when needed. Two screenshots of his Knowplace Course on Podcasting, which I attended and learnt from, in Sept-October 2006, are here:
These memories we are collecting clearly show the indelible trail dear Elderbob left behind in each of those who had the fortune to share some time with him.
Warmly from Argentina,

- I will remember Elderbob with a smile...
Most of my online interactions with him were related to assorted webcasting projects. I will always picture him plugging in a new headset, fiddling with audio settings, and taking a break whenever a grandchild got close.
My thoughts are with family and friends who were closest to Elderbob. I know how much he touched the lives of us who knew him virtually.
Thought I'd share a few pieces of media from our virtual encounters...
