I only talked with Mike a few times, but his cheerful joi de vivre, decency, and lively mind shined out like a light house.

Wonderful and very candid interview with this great man here:

(Note the part where he talks about how development for new tech of a specific typeface was allocated to one of five firms. Made me wonder about monopolies and such.)

Awesome footage. Sad to see such a humble man go.

Not only humble, but immensely knowledgeable, and quite funny. RIP, Mike.

We are diminished.
