Check out the "TI Hall of Fame" entry for Paolo Bagnaresi. It was expertly written by Berry Harmsen.

You are absolutely right, Berry. We have lost a giant in the TI world. It was a great pleasure to meet Paolo and and Maria at the Treff in Paderborn, a few years ago. He was very easy to talk to, and extremely knowledgable about our machine. They were planning on coming to the Faire a couple of years back, but then Paolo got sick and they cancelled their plans. It would have been wonderful to have everyone here meet him. He will be greatly missed. --Hal

I have lost a dear TI friend. I met him several times, all over Europe and had the honour to write his biography for the TI99ers Hall of Fame. Go to http://www.ti99hof.org/bios/PaoloBagnaresi/PaoloBagnaresi.htm
On the site of the Dutch TI Users Group (TI Gebruikersgroup)you will find two interviews with Paolo about his program TI99-PC. Click on 'The TIGG op uw buis'. The interview was taken during the European TI Treffen in Vienna.
It is a great lost for his wife Maria and his family and friends. The international TI community lost an icon and a gentleman.Berry
