Macworld reports that MacCentral and MacMinute founder Stan Flack passed away quietly on Monday at his Prince Edward Island, Canada home. He died of complications from a pre-existing condition.
Flack found MacCentral in 1994 as a weekly online publication, which he sold to IDG in 1999. He founded MacMinute several years later.
Flack's friend and colleague Jim Dalrymple included several personal reflections in his short write up:
We both worked at a local newspaper back then and often chatted about having our own business, being our own boss and ruling the world ... I remember Stan walking into my house [one day] and saying it was time to take MacCentral to the next level.
Stan did take Mac publishing to the next level and, now, he's made that journey himself.
