MacCentral & MacMinute Founder Dies

by , 5:15 PM EDT, April 14th, 2008

Stan Flack, the founder of both MacCentral and MacMinute, passed away Monday. According to Macworld, which purchased MacCentral in 1999, Mr. Flack died of natural causes -- from complications to a pre-existing condition -- in his home in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

As the founder of MacCentral, which launched in 1994, Mr. Flack was an influential founding member of what eventually went on to be known as the Mac Web. Two years after selling MacCentral to Macworld magazine, Mr. Flack started the blurb-oriented MacMinute.

The Mac Observer would like to offer our condolences to Mr. Flack's family and friends. You can read our own Ted Landau's personal tribute to Mr. Flack in his User Friendly Blog entry for Monday.
