It is with great sadness that I share news of the passing of Marc Resnick, who, since 2014, was the genius behind the EID blog. His last post appeared on February 18. As regular readers know, Marc brilliantly commented on a wide range of topics, many gleaned from the popular media, and provided his take on how HF/E research and practice might inform those topics. His writing was lively and accessible, and many people looked forward to his posts as one of the highlights of their online experience.
Marc was a professor at Bentley University and a long-time member of HFES. He served on the Executive Council and was an originator and staunch supporter of UX Day at the Annual Meeting. His HFES service also included the Technical Program Committee and a number of TG roles, most recently as program chair for the Internet TG.
Always upbeat and optimistic, Marc was a collaborator, mentor, and friend to many. We are saddened by his passing, and we will miss him deeply.
William S. Marras, HFES President
