Craig Cline, 2001

Craig Cline (1951–2006) worked at Atex and then served as conference director of Seybold Seminars and vice president of content development for the Seminars, as well as editorial director of Seybold Publications,[1] holding the latter two titles since November 1996.[2]

He began with Seybold in the mid 1980s when the Seminars were the major conference for the growing electronic publishing industry and helped make them into "milestones for designers, developers, and production folks of all stripes in their struggle to understand what is going on with the technology."[3]

Cline is credited along with Dale Dougherty of O'Reilly Media with coming up with the term "Web 2.0."[4]

He died on 2 September 2006 after a strenuous battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), leaving behind a wife and six children.
