Vale Graeme Philipson
26 January 2021 Sydney
Many of us had the privilege of working with Graeme Philipson over many years. In particular, the Pearcey Foundation had engaged with Graeme to create the definitive History of the Australian ICT Industry. Graeme was taken from us all on Australia Day 2021 brought on by an unfortunate accident earlier in January 2021, at his home in suburban Sydney. This is a tragic loss for his family and we extend our sympathies to them and his close personal friends.
Given Graeme's prominence in our industry be it as a journalist, an historian, an author, Poet, Industry commentator, Chair of the Australian Computer Museum Society, or simply as a peer, we at the Pearcey Foundation are working with other industry folks to ensure his passing does not go unnoticed. Any memorial event will be planned in conjunction with his family. As these plans crystalise, we will keep you informed on just how we might all share in a celebration of Graeme's most diverse eclectic life.
