I am quite saddened to hear this news - in Wikipedia's early years and
while the Wikimedia Foundation was being created, Alex was a
tremendously important part of the community. In addition to helping
draft the original bylaws and providing other legal advice, he deserves
credit for his part in shaping our culture of high standards for dealing
with copyrights, licensing obligations, and other legal issues. I'm glad
that I was able to meet him in person at Wikimania in Boston, when he
was still a somewhat active participant.
