Wayne Green goes QRT

A few years ago I wrote about Wayne Green (Going Green), an influential and controversial editor and publisher of first Amateur Radio, and later, computer periodicals. Wayne had strong opinions about everything. I agreed with many of his ideas, but some of them just seemed nutty.

Going GreenAccording to a notice on Wayne’s blog, he passed away on Friday the 13th. Born in 1922, Wayne lived to be 91 years old. Many moving tributes have been posted on his blog since Friday. His enthusiasm and vision kick-started a lot of people in the technology sector. Rest In Peace, Wayne.

(QRT is a radio telegraph abbreviation that means “I’m shutting down operations. This station is going off the air.”)

February 2016 update: waynegreen.com is now owned by someone else. To read Wayne’s blog, view its “snapshots” on archive.org.
