"I 'met' Bob Anderson in 1995/96 or so. I never met him in person though: we collaborated on internet art projects through the organization Sito, BAZ was one of the early and influential members there. I call him "
" because that's how I knew him, by his internet nickname. The internet was a lot smaller then, I was a lot younger also and I realize now how lucky I was to meet someone like Bob early on. I thought the internet would be filled with people like him: smart, innovative, cool, insightful and more. I now realize how rare individuals like him are, not just on the Web but in the world, his early passing is a loss for us all."
