Valerie Gregg

It's with sadness that I note that passing of Valerie Gregg. Valerie, as many of the readers fo this blog will know, was, along with Larry Brandt, one of the key architects of the Digital Government program at NSF (which, I would note, provided the resources to launch PNG). She played a key role in facilitating the emergence of a research community around technology and government, actively fostering domestic and international networks around this area. As discussions move forward today regarding how to utilize technology to make government more transparent, democratic, and effective, we should remember that one of the key people in enabling those discussions was Valerie.

More than that, everyone would agree, she was a mensch. She instantly changed the chemistry of every room she entered for the better. The world is a better place for her having graced us with her presence.
