I learned last week that my friend Habib had died. I didn't actually know he was sick, and I wouldn't really have expected so, seeing him in the periphery being busy as usual, networking, organizing communities.

It was strange, but at the same time quite appropriate, that I learned he had died a month earlier by noticing the messages people left for him on his Facebook profile. And in that month he had appeared a number of times in the event feed, seemingly having recruited people to causes, having gotten new friends. And people continued leaving messages to him, as if he was going to read them, but now sad but thankful goodbye notices. I left one too.

It is not that I knew Habib terribly well, but I've known him for a number of years, and he'd been on my very short list of the greatest networkers and community organizers I know. I know a lot of networkers, and a lot of people with large networks, but not quite anybody who puts their energy into using them as well for good as Habib did. He seemed to spend all his time weaving things together, organizing communities, and just being present with people. That is, somebody who would happily spend several hours with you on the phone, and who truly was interested in knowing you, helping you in the areas where you might need help, and connecting you up with collaborators in areas where your strengths are.

We met in the late 90s sometime. He came by my office in Venice, California, and we talked a lot about network collaborations. Later he sent me a plane ticket to come up to Seattle, and we met once or twice at conferences and open space meetings after that.

How did you know Habib: Habib's Garden
Habib's Blog: Neighbor Networking

Bye for now, Habib, it was an honor and a pleasure knowing you.

10 Nov 2007 @ 01:36 by Curt Rosengren @216.231.49.200 : A real loss
Wow, Flemming. This is sad news. Habib was a truly amazing guy. I didn't know him well, but I had encountered him from time to time out and about in the Seattle community.

I got a sense of how many people's lives he touched when I was invited to a get-together of people to help brainstorm for his job search (he had been having a challenging time of it). I walked in, expecting a small group, and there were around fifty people there. Many of them had a compelling story about how Habib couldn't help but help people when he saw the chance.

It's a real loss for the community.

Yeah, it sucks. A connector if I ever saw one, both locally and virtually.

If you tried to touch my woman she'd break your dick off like a twig then stick it up your arse.

The particular tragedy inside Pakistan continues to worsen since relief products and support fall far in short supply of what is necessary. More support is anxiously needed because the potential for countless fatalities commences to loom.
