Steve Cisler, Digital Librarian, RIP

I had the opportunity to interact with Steve in the early 90’s. I was in Tulsa, OK., at the time and we were looking to putting the City Council and other City Departments on line. Steve was my contact at Apple. We spoke by phone a number of times and exchanged e-mails. He will be missed.
