RIP Paul Reynolds
Paul Reynolds was one of the most well known and respected commentators and thinkers on the topics of information access and technological change in New Zealand.
Paul spent many years enlightening listeners of Radio New Zealand to the wonders and potential of technology, and never failed to make the most complex things sound simple.
He was involved in a huge range of organisations and initiatives, designed to make New Zealand a more informed society. He was a member of the National Digital Forum, an adjunct director (digital library) to the National Library of New Zealand and a member of the former Government’s Digital Strategy Advisory group. Paul also served previously on the board of the Auckland War Memorial Museum and as a Library and Information Advisory Commissioner.
His sudden death on Sunday 23 May 2010 came as a shock to everyone who knew him, and has robbed New Zealand of one of its most innovative and visionary thinkers, and is an inconsolable loss for his family and friends.
If you would like to pass on your condolences to Helen and daughter Melanie, please feel free to leave a comment below, and InternetNZ will forward them onto his family.
