Stan Flack passes

Stan Flack, a pioneer of the Mac journalism industry and the founder of MacCentral, has passd away at his home in Prince Edward Island, Canada, reports Macworld. Flack founded MacCentral in the mid-90s, and his site was later acquired by Mac Publishing LLC. Jim Dalrymple, who worked with Flack in the early day of MacCentral wrote: "Stan has been in the Mac industry since 1994 when MacCentral first went online as a weekly publication. Things were a lot different back then--the Internet as we know it was in its infancy--but Stan saw a way to make a successful business. We both worked at a local newspaper back then and often chatted about having our own business, being our own boss and ruling the world. To a large degree a lot of those goals were accomplished."

Flack reportedly suffered from congential liver disease, which was diagnosed within the past few months.

    Great loss to all

    Stan was one of the pioneers of internet Mac journalism and made MacCentral a world-class stop for Mac users hungry for the latest news.

    He was also a terrific boss.

    He'll be greatly missed by those who knew him and visited his sites.

    did it right

    Hey Stan. We met more than a few times in the press lounges at different MacWorlds. You set the bar for Mac-centric journalism. Sorry to see you go.

    Thanks, Stan ...

    Your contributions throughout the Mac community will be missed. MacMinute was quite a contender, and shall not be forgotten or die without a salute to you from all of us who enjoyed Mac news and rumors. *Thank you.*
