Marc Orchant Suffers Massive Coronary

We are fortunate to have a community of dedicated enthusiasts that offer a continual amount of time, effort and energy to share their knowledge so others can benefit.  Such has been the case with Marc Orchant, an author on blognation USA.  Marc has been a incredibly involved as you can see from this summary from Answers.com:

Marc Orchant has been building, testing, and sometimes breaking hardware and software for 25 years. Marc is the Storyteller at VanDyke Software, a prolific blogger, co-host of The Tablet PC Show, a podcast about pen-based computing technology, and a self-admitted "gadget freak and software addict."

Marc writes a number of blogs including two which focus heavily on office and personal productivity — The Office Weblog (http://office.weblogsinc.com) and Marc’s Outlook on Productivity (http://blogs.officezealot.com/marc). He is also the author of The Tablet PC Weblog and a contributor to The Unofficial Microsoft Weblog (http://microsoft.weblogsinc.com) (http://tabletpcs.weblogsinc.com). Marc is an editor of the GTD Zone at the OfficeZealot.com community site (http://www.officezealot.com/gtd) which aggregates the blogs of a number of prominent writers who focus on the topic of personal productivity and offers links to articles and software tools.

Sadly, Marc suffered a massive coronary on Sunday morning and is currently in the hospital in Albuquerque, NM.  Over the years, Marc has given so much to us so now is the time when all of us need to give back to Marc.  What can you do?  Send him a card, wish him well, tell him your thoughts and the thoughts of the community are with him and that we all wish him a speedy recovery.

For those of you that wish to send flowers, cards, or other gifts, Marc is at:

Presbyterian Hospital
Cardiac Care Unit Bed #3
1100 Central Ave SE
Albuquerque, NM 87106

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Marc and his family.
