Our hearts go out to the family and friends of local Denver Macintosh consultant, trainer, and author Michael Bartosh... Michael died in an accident in Japan early Sunday morning, 11 June 2006. He is survived by his wife, Amber.
Michael was the CTO of 4am Media, based in Denver. He was an extremely knowledgeable individual, an official Apple Curriculum Trainer, and the principal author of Essential Mac OS X Panther Server Administration from O'Reilly. He was a frequent contributor to the Mac OS X Server mailing list, the Apple Consultants Network mailing lists, and several website forums such as AFP548.com.
I didn't really know Michael very well, having only exchanged email with him from time to time, but he will be sadly missed by the Macintosh community. There are several thoughtful tributes to Michael on the web, including AFP548.com and Chuck Toporek on MacDevCenter at O'Reilly Network. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, with condolences on their loss.
