It is with great sadness that I share the news of the passing of David Houston. Dave was the first person I made contact with in Dublin when I made the decision to move over from Canada. We had a link in our support of SBS and that lead to a mutual respect. I ran a user group back in Canada and I respect the time and dedication it tales to run a group like SBS Ireland as Dave had for a number of years.He was a fun and interesting guy with a deep desire to be involved in the technical community here in Dublin and make others better. I was fortunate enough to attend TechEd EMEA with Dave in 2009 and had a chance to spend time with Dave and get to know him and as a result will greatly miss him in the community and in general.
